What heron is this?

Hi there!

This is my first post here! Was wondering what heron this is.
Have uploaded a jpeg below.
Here's a video of it: https://youtu.be/LYRu9C0ZQ1Q

Found it sunning at freshwater's edge, at Hindhede quarry, Singapore on 14th February 2020, 10+am.

Have been following it for 2-3 weeks now, has been nesting in the same spot after shedding its feathers.

Thanks in advance for any positive ID! Cheers.
