Richmond Park

by Ada@

EN: One of my favorite parks in London is Richmond Park.
I love it because I fell close to the wildlife and wilderness. The main roads are crowded with bikes and make me feel I am on the tour of France. Someone needs to remind people it is a park and there are animals around; they need some bumpers to slow down. 🙂
That was the only negative remark regarding the park, now let’s focus only on the good ones.
In case you didn’t know, Richmond Park has protected status as essential habitat for wildlife and is a National Nature Reserve, London’s largest Site of Special Scientific Interest, and a European Special Area of Conservation.
Richmond Park is one of London’s eight Royal Parks and covers an area of 2500 acres.
Last year, when it was the hottest day, I decided to go to Richmond Park for the first time. It was such a good idea. The air was more breathable, and it was such a pleasant surprise to see the herds of deer and their little fawns. I love animals, and I am delighted that somehow if we wanted, we can live in harmony with nature and animals, at least now, because, in the beginning, the park was used for hunting during King Charles I in 1625.
My second trip there was this spring. I also meet the deers and enjoy a little bit of nature in this loud and fascinating city.
Of course, on both visits, I didn’t manage to visit everything, and on my list for the next trip is Isabela Plantation, which was close because of the pandemic.
The long history behind the park started with Edward (1272-1307), when the area was known as the Manor of Sheen. Then, during Henry VII’s reign, its name changed to Richmond.
OK, OK, let’s leave history behind, and let’s see what nature offers us through my pictures! Enjoy it!

RO: Unul din parcurile mele favorite aici in Londra este parcul Richmond. Il iubesc in principal deoarece ma simt aproape de natura, de animale salbatice si daca nu urmezi drumurile principale te simti ca intr-o padure salbatica. Drumurile principale te fac sa te simti ca la turul Frantei printe multimea de biciclisti care cred ca uita ca sunt intr-un parc si sunt animale salbatice imprejur. Poate nu ar fi rau sa fie puse indicatoare cu reducerea vitezei. Acesta ar fi singurul lucru rau pe care l-as putea spune despre parc, acum sa ne concentram numai pe cele bune. In caz ca nu stiai parcul Richmond are un statut de protejare a habitatului esetial vietii salbatice si este Rezervatie Naturala Nationala, cel mai mare Site de Interes Stiintific Deosebit din Londra si o face parte din Zona Speciala Europeana de Conservare. Impresionant, nu-i asa?!

De asemenea, el este si unul dintre cele opt parcuri regale si acopera o arie de 2500 acri. In perioda cea mai calduroasa de anul trecut am decis sa-l vizitez pentru prima data. A fost o idee minunata. Aerul a fost mai usor de respirat si ce surpriza minunata a fost sa ma intalnesc cu grupuri de caprioare si ale lor mici puii. Iubesc animalele si sunt super incantata sa obeserv, ca daca vrem, putem locui in armonie cu natura. Sa admiram mai mult decat sa intervenim in cursul ei, cel putin acum, deoarece la inceputurile lui, parcul a fost folosit pentru vantatoare in perioada regelui Charles I in 1625.

A doua mea escapada aici a fost in acest an, in timpul primaverii. Am reintalnit caprioarele si m-am bucurat un pic de natura in acest galagios si fascinat oras. Cu siguranta ca in niciuna din excursiile mele, la acest moment, nu am reusit sa ajung peste tot, asa ca pe lista mea pentru urmatoarea vizita este Plantatia Isabella, care are a fost inchisa pe perioada pandemiei.

Lunga istorie din spatele parcului a inceput cu Edward (1272-1307) pe cand zona era cunoscuta ca Manor of Sheen. Apoi, in perioada domniei lui Henry VII si-a schimbat numele in Richmond. Bun, bun sa nu ne pierdem in istorie, mai bine bine sa vedem ce ne ofera natura prin pozele realizate de mine!

EN: Pictures are taken by Ada@ and are RAW format, some of them doesn’t look perfect because of the phone zoom, also one of the rules it is to keep the distance from the deers especial when the have fawns.

RO: Pozele sunt realizate de catre Ada@ si sunt in format RAW, cateva dintre ele nu sunt foarte bune, din cauza zoomului de la telefon; de asemenea una din reguli este sa mentii distanta fata de caprioare in mod special cand au puii.
