The habitats in Cave Hill Country Park range from woodland and parkland to meadows and moorland, and each area has particular species associated with it. In the mature woodland can be found many garden and woodland birds such as chaffinches, great tits and wrens, while growing underfoot are carpets of bluebells, wild garlic and wood anemone. Towards dusk you might glimpse a badger or a bat, emerging on their nightly hunt. On the heathland, where skylarks and meadow pipits can be heard and various birds of prey roam, the ground cover is a mix of species such as heather, bilberry, and the brightly coloured yellow gorse. In summer, many butterflies, including the meadow brown, ringlet and common blue, fly over the upland meadows.
