Great white heron, Kotu bridge, Kotu, The Gambia

The great egret (Ardea alba), also known as the common egret, large egret or (in the Old World) great white egret or great white heron.

In my book: Birds of Senegal and the Gambia (Helm Field Guides) is is listed as Egretta alba, but on Wikipedia I read:
The great egret—unlike the typical egrets—does not belong to the genus Egretta but together with the great herons is today placed in Ardea. In the past, however, it was sometimes placed in Egretta or separated in a monotypic genus Casmerodius.

Halloween Crab (?)

Seen from the viewing platform of the Bakotu Hotel, Kotu, Gambia. Aftersome research this is the likeliest crab as the area is thick with mangroves. If anyone can confirm this, or put me right I'd be grateful. It's carapace was about 3 inches across.
