Nice capture, but looks like an egret to me. But I am certainly not familiar with Eurobirds.

In my opinion they just are from the same family. I have found these links which could be interesting:

mickmusser is right. the heron stands much taller and has a longer neck. much wider wingspan. the egret has never been a problem in our koi ponds, but the heron certainly has done a lot of damage.

a beautiful picture !
