Posted · Add Comment

The Wasp Spider (Argiope bruennichi) was first spotted near the pond dipping platform on Saturday 25th August 2018, by member George Walthew. This is a new addition to the reserve’s species list. 

This species of spider is known to live predominantly along the south coast of England, although they are now establishing in habitats further northwards. Make sure you look out for him on your next visit – it will be hard to miss his stripes!
