Very good and detailed image! Though I don't believe that it is an Ibis. It looks more like an Egret - but it hard to say, because you can't see the beak. If it was curved - then you probably got an Ibis - if it's straight - an Egret.
The Bubulcus would be a Cattle Egret
Well done anyway!
Ciao Klaus

Thanks for the share,
