Sorry Hadrian.

There are quite a few websites out there for referring to..here's one http://www.arachnology.org/ but it'll take ages to source it.

Did you take that photo ?

We certainly need  to cast a web to catch a spider specialist

this little chap i living in a small bog. The bog is under threat of being developed for peat. Itís only a few meters from a town centre and has potential wheelchair access as it has an old railway bed going through it. . I am trying to save it by finding some that is extraordinary or endangered on it.
