In the report they write: record consideret as not proven - 'Indian Pond Heron Ardeola grayii. Luxor, Crocodile Island, 1 pre-breeding adult, 24 April 2004. The specific identification relies on correct aging as an adult which is challenged by the non-breeding plumage in April, while the lores are not described'.
