I have seen similar Herons around this site for the last three years or more. It appears to be a juvenile, because I think the adult Heron has a marked black stripe horizontally crossing each side of it's head, level with the eye. I also think adult Herons have a much longer plume of feathers from the top of the head down the neck.
