Our boat moved slowly and all of us carefully observe every branch of the trees to find the bird. Suddenly the kingfisher flew fast from the back of us to the front of the boat and disappeared in the next turn of the river.
Some striated heron flew above our heads. There were also little egret flying from one branch of the tree. We also saw heron, and slender-billed crow.
As our boat moved deeper into the river, we saw the Great-billed Kingfisher was sitting on the lower branch of a tree above the water. Suddenly he dived into the water and then came out with a fish.

The bird then flew to other branch that was more visible to us. We took the opportunity to make more pictures.
When everybody has made pictures of the bird, we slowly returned to the river mouth. The view of the beach was very beautiful. We liked it very much.
