Well I stand corrected. The Spider in the posting from Saturday, is actually a species of Steatoda. My informant thinks it could be a Steatoda bipunctata but without seeing it properly, it's hard to be sure.
Doing a bit of hunting through reference sites may point it towards Steatoda nobilis, the False Widow Spider
If anyone can fully ID this spider I'll be grateful, but credit where credit's due to a much better naturalist than I'll ever be. Thanks Brett for putting me right, again!!
I'd also like to point you to Joe's blog, a 14 year old with a lot of passion for wildlife. Have a look at what happening there and maybe leave an encouraging comment.
