Go pro hero 9 wind problem

[ New ]
when I start to the video I just hear the wind noise although it isn't so windy. Salsa the actual voices like river and rain drops cannot be heard at that time. And a few seconds later real sounds come back. What is the problem?

Can you upload a video to Youtube and post the link here that shows the issue?  It's very hard to understand what could be causing the issue when there's no video to reference.

I slight breeze will causw wind noise. one of the reasons internal Mics are useless whatever they try and do.. When this happes its so loud to the camera the auto gain control kicks in, reducing the Mics gain/sensitivity. Then if the mic is sheiled or the wond dies down, the auto gain/sensitivity reduces and you can hear the water again.. 

This would happen with any camera. Not just the gopro.. If you want good sound, youhave to use an external mic with a propper wind muffler or dead cat as they are called.
