What to do on a showery day...

The weather today has been changeable to say the least. One minute the sun's out, the next it's raining so hard you can't see more than 50 metres away! After checking the res this morning and finding it pretty lifeless, I turned my attention to checking for spiders in the garden and hey presto, another new one for me! I love it when you start looking at something new, so many ticks to be had.

This is Steatoda bipunctata, pretty common and fairly unmistakeable. This one was sitting under an upturned flower pot.
