    Anyone noticed an influx? I know their mating season is around September but we've had a fair few the last month, any idea?

    TIA

    Laura saw an absolute whopper on Sunday. Biggest we've both seen. Unfortunately it startled her while she was shovelling sand on the drive whilst moving bags.

    I don't mind them. Little uns I'll just let them be. Big uns I'll catch and release. Kiddo hates them. Wife will kill them.

    I love the little jumping lads, they are so inquisitive and will jump on you to investigate

    My grandad once had a dead spider in his ear after complaining of hearing loss for months. Sweet dreams

    Thanks for that, old mate. Looks like I'll be sleeping with ear buds tonight!
