I found another spider in my back garden trying to infiltrate my solitary bee cacoons.
Any idea what it is please.
Looks like Zygiella x-notata aka the missing sector orb-weaver spider - very common and widespread and often found around buildings, particularly window frames and sills, porches, sheds, etc where they make their orb webs in which they catch prey.

They tuck themselves away in a convenient nook or cranny from which they can run down a thread to the web.
