A total of 26 species have been recorded including grizzled skipper (Pyrgus malvae), white-letter hairstreak (Satyrium w-album), green-veined white (Pieris napi), brown argus (Aricia agestis), marbled white (Melangargia galthea), silver-washed fritillary (Argynnis paphia) and marsh fritillary (Eurodryas aurinia).
