Labyrinth Spider

You have to look carefully but when you do you can just make out the palps of a labyrinth spider, Agelena labyrinthica,  waiting patiently at the end its tunnel.
It is common in the south of the country and is often referred to, inaccurately, as a 'funnel web' spider. 

As usual, there is an impressive amount of information out there on the web, in particular the Spider and Harvestman Recording Scheme.
