Our day started off at Busy Park where we saw deer’s sharpening their antlers, getting ready for mating season. We also saw red and fallow deer’s, some with young ones still in tow.
We went for a lovely walk around the Water Gardens where we spotted a variety of birds. Walked over the crocodile bridge to get to the Fisher’s pond. After a lovely walk we treated ourselves to a cup of tea whilst sitting outside the Pheasantry Cafe which overlooked the gardens.
The residents really enjoyed their trip to Richmond Park and found the information packs extremely useful as it had details about the location. The residents were also given a tour to see the famous houses within that area which they loved.
We were all very happy to see the deer’s even though some were hiding from our view. We also witnessed two stags whom locked their antlers, practising for their rutting season. It was quite intense as it sounded like hockey sticks clashing and even has the chance to hear one dear bray.
Before heading home, we stopped by at Pembroke House to have tea and coffee which was much needed.
