I feel so silly, moving to the countryside and posting about this, but there is something strange in my hay barn. I was showing my brother round yesterday and just by the door there is a HUGE funnel shaped web. Nothing in it, but I could not imagine what size the creature who made it must be. It is clearly a funnel, anchored to the ceiling and floor with long strong filaments and hte web itself is about twelve inches long and at least eight in diameter. It is woven very strongly in a sort of mesh. But I did not think we had funnel spiders in Europe and the only ones I have heard of are very poisonous and live in Australia. I don't want to go online as I (silly again) do not want to be confronted with a load of nasty pix. I really hate the things and can only just deal with the ones in the kitchen. Anyone got any ideas? Without pix, please!
