NORWICH: A new spider (Philodromus dispar)

2nd April 2018

For people who are mostly interested in birds, seeing a new species is a fairly uncommon occurrence and will usually involve spending hours searching a local patch or bit of coastal scrub in favourable conditions, or dashing off to look for a rarity that another birder has found and kindly broadcast news about. For someone interested in a wide variety of wildlife, new things turn up much more often. For instance, I went as far as my porch and saw this spider - Philodromus dispar (thanks to Pip Collyer for the ID).
