Nursery Unit  April   20, 2016 Today Pea and Pod decided to spend their day with the older orphans unlike other days which they like to spend more in the company of the babies. Though when they were with older orphans today Tusuja, Mwashoti, Alamaya and Rapa were teasing them charging and chasing after them when they fed close to them. The big birds knew how to trick them though and would challenge them by running very fast and when the babies followed them they would suddenly stop and start spinning round fast with their wings open; something which frightened the naughty Tusuja and Rapa and which sent them running back yelling out loud in protest, and leaving Mwashoti and Alamaya who spread their ears wide at Pea and Pod but they just ran away again in a zig-zagging motion. Mwashoti and Alamaya were left to bash the bushes down and trumpet with their ears wide as a show of defiance to the birds! As Mwashoti and Alamaya were busy with this show of strength they accidentally had a head-on collision whilst they were both stamping around! Mwashoti fell on his side and this annoyed him. He got up quickly and walked away from Alamaya, bringing an end to that whole game and leaving Pea and Pod finally in a bit of peace to enjoy their browsing.
