Please can you identify this spider?

This is the 3rd one of these I have found out on my 4th floor balcony in 3 weeks. I live in south west london, uk. I recently put up some reed screening out there and am wondering if this is whats attracting them as I have never had many spiders out there before. I have also seen quite a few babies as well. If someone could please tell me what species this little dude is I would be most grateful. White/creamish markings on back, legs and underneath a pinkish colour. About the size of a 50p? Sorry the photos are not great quality.

    Hi Angie,


    The spider in your photo is a male lace weaver, 2 common species are Amaurobius similis & Amaurobius fenestralis...the latter getting it's name from its fondness for living on windows. These are very common spiders, often found on the exterior of homes.
