Had to sit patiently for an hour near this pond
before the birds started fishing.
The efficiency of this particular Night Heron was amazing,
at times it would catch two fishes in one go,
after about 15-20 minutes I lost count of the fishes it had gulped down.
A paddy bird would try its luck at fishing at the same spot
but would be driven away by its bigger competitor,
even then it managed to get its share from
under the nose (beak) of the night heron.
It was eventually disturbed by a herdsmen
who brought his cattle to the pond for a bath,
and that was the end of the show!!
