Arger fen and Spouse's Vale are a mixture of ancient coppice woodland and new naturally regenerating woodland along side wet meadows. There is a mixture of trees such as oak, ash, field maple, holly, crab apple, alder and hazel plus wild cherry which exists in just a few of Suffolk's ancient woodlands. There is dry wooded areas and damp valley floors which create a rich environment for wildlife. There is a healthy population of badgers; lizards and grass snakes and the rare declining hazel dormouse and Barbastelle bat and many woodland birds. Butterflies can be found on the wing in the summer months. There is also a large selection of wild flowers through spring and summer including a magnificent display of bluebells.
