What colour were its legs and feet?

Without this detail another (extremely rare) confusion species cannot be ruled out with this photo.

David,

This was the only view on the day it stayed where it was just behind the bank. There was a grey heron in front of the bank, and this seemed much larger than the egret. I have stupidly deleted the photo that had them both in shot, so unable to show comparison.
