Can you identify this spider please? Photo taken last week on my garden gate.
The Nursery Web spider, Pisaura mirabilis (Araneae: Pisauridae) - a common spider in 'field and vale' and also reasonably common in gardens these days.
See: British Arachnological Society info here: http://wiki.britishspiders.org.uk/index.php5?title=Pisaura_mirabilis
Oh thank you so much. Nice to be able to put a name to creatures, hope it turns up again sometime.
