Sad Sacrifice

By Will Knocker:

On sunday, all that remained of a cock ostrich that had been sitting on a nest I was aware of….

The good news is that the HEN was still sitting on some eggs, so let us hope some chicks manage to survive this sad story…

    Oh Will – sad outcome for this male. Do you think it was killed by a predator? I presume if it was hit by a vehicle there would be a body. I know that the male will take his turn sitting on the eggs; hope Mom and chicks will survive also.

    Thanks Dana: will let you know what happens…..certainly there are lots of Ostriches in NNP: SUCH a haven for ALL forms of life. Why? Because there are no people….

    Well people do visit the Park as we know. Let’s just pray that poachers don’t. This Park is a Kenya national heritage and should be kept safe from those guys. And the lions stay put!
