Highbury Park is rich in birdlife a fact that is appreciated by regular visitors to the park. Kingfisher, tree creeper, jay and nuthatch have been spotted and the ponds support Canada geese, Mallard and Moorhen. Carrion crows are a familiar sight on the open grassland and magpies are numerous.
New scrub areas provide safe nesting sites for songbirds and the walled rose-garden has sheltered nesting blackbirds.
