The spiders are making an appearance

Paul Iddon

Quick look into the garden area tonight and my usual horde of spiders are beginning to show up.

The jumping spider (Salticus scenicus) on the wall. The cellar spider(s) Pholcus phalangioides in the shed will soon fatten up with this years baby parlour, the Amauobious sp. are coming to drum on the fence, and my ever-increasing Steatoda nobilis false widows (rabbit hutch spiders) are bossing the top of the fence panels in greater numbers than previously.
