    Hi Christina,

     

    This is a harmless Zygiella species, almost certainly Zygiella x-notata (AKA missing sector orb weaver). They do seem to specialise in "window living", I'm sure you will notice many more now that you are aware of them. They also typially make homes in/on other man-made structures, like climbing frames, unused bicycles, car wing mirrors...you name it really.

     

    Regards, Mark.
