- A good variety of fungi can be seen. Recent workshops with local expert Tony Leech recorded about 100 species, including nationally rare lilac mushrooms and golden bootlegs. Parasols have been particularly common this year.
- Autumn colour - an interesting combination of native and exotic tree species help to provide a stunning display as the leaves begin to fall.
- Listen out for the calls of nuthatch and green woodpecker.
- Southern hawker, common and ruddy darter dragonflies on the wing.
- Red admiral, peacock and comma butterflies can often be seen sunning themselves on the vegetation.
