Mayford Heritage Pond


Among the more obvious visitors such as the Red Fox, Rabbit, and Mole, are some smaller residents that include the Common Shrew and Wood Mouse.  Occasionally, a Roe Deer or two can be seen browsing at night.  Also at night, Common Pipistrelle bats can be seen flitting around at night as they hunt for their next mouthful. A Pipistrelle can catch up to 3,000 midges in one night.
