Bit of a drab sort of a day

The Safari has a warning for you - if you don't like blood n guts scroll quickly to the bottom and work back up to the spider...some of you may find that more abhorrent the the innards!
Anyway here goes, with thanks to Wheeless.com...this why our right hand is a bit sore. It's notour hand but one like it.

Anyway onto the only pic we did manage to take in the gloom today - a Garden Cross Spider doing its level best to stay out of the limelight.
The vis was a lot slower than expected but we did get 2 Skylarks (garden #38) along with 37 Meadow Pipits, a Sparrowhawk and a skein of eight Pink Footed Geese. Trying to get pics of Herring Gulls coming to bread on the garage roof was spectacularly unsuccessful.
Feeder activity was well down on yesterday but we did manage to move them around a bit so the untouched Nyger seed is nearest the cover and the two favoured feeders are nearest to our photo position. We hope to improvise a hide type thingy to get even closer; probably just means throwing an old sheet over our head!
Where to next? There's a promise of better, or at least less grey, weather tomorrow.
In the meantime let us know what the scariest bloodiest thing is in your outback

Cracking pic of the spider, Dave. Its markings are put to well use, there.
