Thought this spider looked a bit different, wondered what it was?
It is difficult to tell from these photos. Are you able to post a clearer photo?
Despite these pictures being too fuzzy to venture an educated guess, i'm leaning towards a Nuctenea umbratica (often called a walnut orb weaver).
The females especially are able to overwinter successfully, meaning it's not uncommon to see adults at this time of year.
But without a clearer photograph, i'm afraid this is akin to guesswork!
I'll give it another go later, only comes out in the dark.
Considering my dislike for spiders I got impressively close.
