In summer the wildflower meadow supports many pollinators including the scarce Ruderal Bumblebee. Southern Marsh Orchids appear in great floral spots during summer. House Martins may be a common sight breeding on the nearby houses and Common Lizards can be found sunbathing here. There is a significant Wasp Spider population which are best seen in summer and early autumn.
As autumn commences Small Heath butterflies are often darting around on the paths. There may be passing warblers, such as Blackcap and Lesser Whitethroat, or even a Tree Pipit, with Siskins and Crossbills possible later in the year.
In winter, Woodcock may be found hiding amongst the leaf litter, while Thrushes and Bramblings are making use of any winter food around within the trees and bushes.
