We have surveyed the ponds and stream. Water beetles, pond skaters, many species of pond snail, water boatmen, flatworms and leeches have been found in the Henburys Pond. There have been many incidents of pollution in the Shuttock stream that have been reported to the Environment Agency. In 2024 this remains a concern.
