Pale Spider

What ho fellows! I hope you''re all having a great summer.

While clearing out the pond filter I noticed this little chap wandering about. Obviously unaffected by the dark conditions in the filter I wondered if anyone could give it a name (Gollum)? Total legspan was about 5mm. Sorry for the rather bad pictures. I had to grab the first camera to hand.

    Hiya Lewis, have you been busy? You've not been so active on here lately.

     

    Can't help with the spider I'm afraid. The shape doesn't look right for clubionid / gnaphosid so maybe it's a young agelenid or one of the larger linyphiids ?? It does look a bit like Donacochara speciosa which I've come across in boggy areas, but that's rare.
