Sightings of this bird are few and far between in South Africa. This was reported and photographed by Richard Montinaro and co at Mkhombo Dam, and in a follow up visit this last weekend we managed to find the bird again.

Main differences between this and the Black Heron: The Slaty is a more slender bird, having a rufous patch on it's chin, often extending down to the belly. It has yellow legs, whereas the Black Heron has black legs with yellow feet. (Much like a Little Egret.) The Black Heron typically tucks its neck in.
