I know people will not be able to agree with this identification because the photos are so poor but I was so excited to see this bird. We were having a late breakfast in the garden when it came in to sight just over our neighbour's house. Not a heron as first expected because no neck bulge, not a swan because wrong proportions and not fully white, not a stork no red legs. Able to identify with naked eye but by the time I'd rushed in for binoculars it was high and moving north east. I could see black under neck and white behind eye then dark top of head. By the time I thought of the camera it was receding fast as you can see!
