It’s may only just be the start of September, with about twenty odd days before the official opening of the autumnal season, but I think that The Towers is already looking tempting to a couple of creatures of an eight legged disposition, in search of new warm and sheltered accommodation.
First to be spotted by the eagle eyed Nigel is this fairly acceptably sized arachnid, now christened Stanley, who has been very busy indeed spinning what would be quite a romantic web on the outside of our kitchen window……….
…….. had Nigel not noticed that said Stanley appears to have a voracious appetite for other smallerish insects, which he seems to have set aside for his supper (and other meals and snacks), within it’s sticky threads.
However, in his and Darrell’s bedroom there has also appeared another much darker and sinister looking creature, who, as far as we can see hasn’t yet spun a web ……..
…… and if/when he does, I have urged Nigel to keep a very careful eye on it, advising him that some spiders have been known to have eyes bigger than their bellies, I have seen the films!!!
