Spiderman vs. Green Goblin

Posted by Graeme Lyons , Thursday, 14 April 2011 18:11

Here's a nice and easy-to-identify spider, Diaea dorsata. A crab spider that I see quite often in West Sussex, this one was at West Dean Woods. I have only ever come across it by sweeping or beating though. Also there today were two singing Firecrests that I could hear at the same time and some Crossbills flew overhead.

I did the breeding bird survey at Woods Mill this morning and there were two singing Nightingales right out in the open, I managed to film both of them but I'll have to wait to find the time to upload the videos. At least four Whitethroats there and a Cuckoo. In the moth trap was a Powdered Quaker (photo), Oak-tree Pug and a few craneflies that I'm going to take a pop at as well as a second hand Dark Sword-grass caught by Dave and Penny. Pan-species list currently at 3239.
