Most of the invertebrates seen in the meadows are insects, though snails such as Kentish Snail and Heath Snail have also been observed.
The Insect Class is the largest in the animal kingdom, and it is customary to divide it into a number of Orders. Members of the following orders have been recorded:
Five different Ladybirds
Many of the old pollards show considerable evidence of damage to the exposed heartwood by wood-boring beetles.
Dragonflies and Damselflies
Butterflies and Moths
Seven different butterflies have been seen in the meadows, and many more are probably present
Grasshoppers and Ground-hoppers
