Our plants and animals
There are over 40 species of birds here including birds of prey. We have common woodland mammals such as deer but also less noticeable residents like our ten species of bat. You can find reptiles like sand lizards and a small army of insect life. There are wild orchids in the wildflower meadows and a carpet of bluebells in spring.
The parkland at Hatchlands hosts hundreds of species of flora and fauna. Each has their own distinct habitat from sand and clay on one side through to chalk grassland at the other. This grassland, home to wild flowers and butterflies, leads to woodland with great trees, woodland mammals and deadwood habitat. There are two ponds in the park.
