    Hi Karen,


    This is a harmless, missing sector orb weaver (Zygiella species), very common indeed around window frames especially (mostly outside, but occasionally inside too). You can clearly see the black central stripe on the head, with the brown sides, which differentiates it from a false widow, if that was concerning you?


    Regards, Mark.
