||Shortly after midday the Ex Orphans, accompanied by Kijana, Mgeni and another wild bull, came to the Stockade for water. Missing in the group was Yatta, her baby, Kinna and Wendi, which was a concern. At the stockade Mulika’s baby, Mwende, was very playful, leaving her mother to join the other Ex Orphans who were enjoying a wallow at the Stockade waterhole. Having had enough fun, they then left, but 30 minutes later Yatta, her baby, Kinna and Wendi showed up at the stockade, Yatta’s baby following and trying to suckle Kinna instead of her mother. Prior to the arrival of Yatta’s baby, Kinna was the Nannie to Mulika’s little one, but has shifted her attention to the new baby. Yatta’s baby, named “Yetu” (meaning ‘Ours’ seems to have two Nannies, Wendi and Kinna.
In the evening a family of 6 wild elephants came to drink at the Stockades
