This is a good time to look out for the berries of Spindle which occur infrequently in the Wyre area. In some hedgerows the pink fruits contrast in colour with red haws when they grow alongside. A close view will reveal the Spindles’s seeds in bright orange sheaths.
This spider hides under bark of trees, gateposts, or wooden fences by day, but emerges just before dark to spin its orb web. This is a dark individual, but often the central abdominal pattern is edged with white.
