The SEPA Checklist is very non-specific regarding wildlife found in and around the site. I am providing a link to eBird’s accumulated list of bird species found there. You will not only see the 108 specific species observed there but the names of some local people who submitted the observations. You can also click on individual species names and see the number of times (including dates) the species has been observed in the location.

eBird is an online database operated by Cornell University. I don’t know if there are similar databases for other types of animals, but I think these things need to be carefully considered.
