Badgers are present and a number of deer (particularly Muntjac) frequent the woodland. The woodland was once a SSSI for its invertebrate records but was unfortunately de-notified many years ago after the extensive felling and replanting in the previous ownership. Recent surveys have shown that some butterfly species such as the wood white, white admiral and purple hairstreak are present on the site. The wood white is a rediscovery, having last been seen in the 1980's and thought to be extinct. These species may be responding to increasing light levels in the woodland, particularly along the ride edges where there is a greater range of vegetation due to ride management and PAWS restoration.
