its made a large web outside an upstairs window
Hard to be 100% sure, but most likely it is a garden spider (Araneus diadematus).
its black has a red mark. and shines. the web is irregular in design
Can you get a better picture?
The legs look too "bristly" for a false widow, they don't tend to hang in the middle of webs either, they stay close to cover.
Can you see it's underside, or its top (dorsal) side?
Thanks for all the help so far. I can only see the underside at the moment. it hides only comes out if something get stuck In the web. ill try to get a better picture with more light.
False black widow maybe,we've got a few in our garden and greenhouse
