Fishponds Wood is an unusual wood as it is the site of natural springs which produce a damp woodland with water seeping out of the ground in several places. Birds attracted to this wood include long-tailed tit, goldfinch, bullfinch and tree creepers. Frogs and toads are abundant in this wood. A variety of mammals including fox, pipistrelle bats and wood mouse can be seen. Butterflies are attracted to the woodland edge and include red admiral, brimstone and small tortoiseshell.
