Horsey Island, G W Egret

Walking late morning NE  from the White House (SS470330) along the bank between the estuary and the flood I saw a great white egret in the flooded area of Horsey Island along with 2 spoonbills and several little egrets. Watched it for 5 minutes then it disappeared while my back was turned. Also, on a sand bank between the fisherman's huts and Isley Marsh 3 large duck too distant to ID but very dark with a horizontal white stripe along the flank. Eclipse Eider? Did anyone else see them?
