More from Thursley

This little beauty was found crawling up a Scots Pine just off of the boardwalk that crosses the bog on Thursley Common. I think it might be Sitticus floricola. But, as I'm increasingly having to say, I might be wrong. Oh for a decent spider guide...

There were at least 20 Common Lizards basking in the heat on the boardwalk, ranging in size and colour. Searches for other species of reptile drew a blank. More from the fabled NNR tomorrow.

Hi Steve
I don't know what happened becuase I already posted here but somthing went wrong. Here goes again! The spider looks good for Marpissa muscosa, the nationally scarce jumping spider.
