Picture of compost heap,  Mike Draycott

Animals are not often seen in the reserve, apart from a few rabbits. Moles make their presence known by the mole hills that appear  showing the route of their tunneling.

In the Jackdaw are two compost heaps, which grass snakes are known to like to lay their eggs in. They have been seen in the area.

Badgers are known to be in the area, a den has been constructed in the Spinney, but as yet there is no sign of habbitation.

Mountjack deer and Chinese Water deer have been seen in village gardens, so probably pass through the reserve now and again. No doubt foxes include the Reserve in their hunting grounds.
