Underwater, the kingfisher tries to grab the fish with it's beak. If successful, it needs to exert considerable pressure to keep hold of the slippery, wriggling victim. The kingfisher's natural buoyancy carries it back to the surface. It must then time its wing beat so that a powerful downstroke can propel it out of the water and into the air.
