Birds that breed in the area include the stock dove, hawfinch, long-tailed tit, grey wagtail, lesser spotted woodpecker, honey buzzard and goshawk. An exciting current project is the establishment of new living quarters for eagles in the national park.

Of the various groups of fauna, insects are the most multifaceted. Here you will find unique species such as the large black longhorn beetle, darkling beetle, tineid moth and Lamprotes c-aureum, a moth of the Noctuidae family. Many of the species are associated with dead wood.
