What's Up in the Waterfowl Pond? 

Today the bird staff focuses on a strange phenomenon on the outdoor Waterfowl Pond of the Garden.

This is the pond. Something unusual happened on its surface.

It is too far away to see in detail, but you can see some bubbles on the surface.

It was 8 o'clock in the morning when I took these pictures. Since all the waterfowl were fast asleep, these bubbles or watermarks were not caused by them.

A shot with a closer look. There were some watermarks for sure, even though there is nothing around the point.

Waterfowl kept fast asleep unaware of this phenomenon.

Again, the closer look. It turned out that something under water caused this.


Something seemed to be moving.

These were the cause of the phenomenon;the carps.

The reason why the carp clustered together in such a large number near the water surface in the centre of the pond is yet to be discovered. Perhaps they were just eating food.
