False Widow!

My first ever False Widow spider was in the bath this morning. It has been identified on Facebook as a young Steatoda grossa. Excellent stuff, although I re-homed it in the garden!

In St Andrews Park there were a few hoverflies -  a Sphaerophoria sp., an Eristalis tenax and a Syrphus sp. A caterpillar on one of the paths has been identified on Facebook as possibly that of a Bright-line Brown-eye moth. I have had several adults in the trap over the  summer so it would make sense. Also in the park was a calling Chiffchaff near the pond, Great Tit, singing Wren, several Goldfinches and a family of Blackbirds.

In Belvoir Road today there was a Small White butterfly and a party of Long-tailed Tits.
