Red Kites occasionally make an appearance in the autumn, but three flying southeast over the farm was particularly noteworthy. In addition, two Hobbies were seen: an adult hawking over The Scrub and a juvenile on the barns at Perrotts Farm. 22 Skylarks were over Broadfield. Other sightings across the recording area included 11 Chiffchaffs, 260 House Martins, 19 Swallows, a Pied Wagtail and 12 Meadow Pipits.

Insects at Banstead Woods included two Brown Hairstreaks, a Common Darter, a Brown Argus and two Small Coppers, while the farm had a Small Tortoiseshell.
