Egrets are herons that have white or buff plumage, developing fine plumes during the breeding season.
Egrets are not a biologically distinct group from herons and have the same build.
Its colonization followed naturally from a range expansion into western and northern France in previous decades.
It is now at home on numerous south coast sites, both as a breeding species and as a winter visitor.
Egrets are really just a type of heron, while cranes belong to a separate group of birds, so for the purposes of identifying Tavie's bird I'm going to lump herons and egrets together.
Cranes also have shorter beaks than herons.

What is an egret and where does it live?
Great egrets are found near water, salt or fresh, and feed in wetlands, streams, ponds, tidal flats, and other areas.
They snare prey by walking slowly or standing still for long periods, waiting for an animal to come within range of their long necks and blade-like bills.
