Tricoloured Heron - Co Louth: Update

A possible Tricoloured Heron has been reported from Port Oriel, Co Louth today (Irish Birding). This is a common species on the east coast of the US and if a genuine vagrant would be a first Irish record.
Update 1st August: the bird now seems to be an odd Grey Heron, possibly an immature with some plumage discolouration.

For everyone disappointed at the news above and dreaming of what might have been here are a couple of shots of the real thing taken in Florida in July.
