阿蘇海の鳥(4) Birds of Aso-Kai Lagoon (4)
On Wednesday, I went for a morning ride for the first time in a while. It was a stunning autumn day. I rode around Aso-Kai Lagoon. It's a 20 km ride from my house and back again. While riding I can enjoy the scenes of one of Japan's top 3 scenic spots, different kinds of fish, different species of birds, and so on.
At the beginning of September I saw lots of heads sticking out of the surface of Aso-Kai Lagoon. I wondered what kind of creature they were, so I took a photo. They were fish of about 10 cm in length. They were moving around in a school with their heads sticking out of the water. I thought that was strange and tried to find out what kind of fish they were. Maybe they were mullet. I wonder what this behavior was all about.
