Great White Egret/Heron

Although I am not an avid birdwatcher, I believe I saw a Great White Egret/Heron on the bank of the River Dart just above the Town Bridge,Totnes on the Bridgetown side of the River.

It was perched in a tree overlooking the river.  The sighting was at 5 pm on Sunday 21 September 2014. The Small White egrets are a common sight but I have not seen a Great white before!

(Anyone local to Totnes fancy a look?? Eds)
