My money is on Collared Kingfisher - colour wrong for Forest, Forest has much purple-blue; bill is too large, overall shape of bird wrong. The white forehead spot, although similar to Forest, is relatively smaller. A flight shot would have clinched it with the absence of the 'bullseyes'. But I believe that there is no doubt that it is a Collared Kingfisher. Great shots!!
