Ant! Wasp! Spider!

On the wall alongside the main platform at the station this morning were several ants - I honestly don't think ants have ever featured before on Wild Monty! They looked to me like Small Black Ants - they seemed to be coming and going from a hole at the top of the wall. Also a tiny solitary wasp was running around the wall looking for prey -- not sure if it was an Ichneumon or not. Finally a tiny spider caught my eye - I  wonder if it might be a young Garden Spider.

A Blackcap was singing nearby again. I assume they have bred at the station this year.
