I was wondering if someone might be able to tell me what kind of spider this is?
She is next to her nest up in my south-east facing kitchen window (about 7 feet up).
Her whole body and legs make her the size of a 10p piece, her bulbous body alone is about the same size as a large pea.
I've taken pictres as close as I can but I'm not blessed with a very good zoom unfortunately!
I'm in Bristol, UK.
She is a missing sector orb weaver, very likely Zygiella x-notata. A very common spider around & in homes, especially window frames, occasionally found on car wing mirors too.
Thank you! I shall leave her where she is
