On the edge of a rainwater butt.
I am pretty sure it is one of the ones that does not make webs. It jumped onto a bracket and dropped the remains of a mosquito before i could get the focus right.

Marking behind the head

It looks close to S scenticus except for a clear "X" behind the head.

not money spider

minor point - the term 'money spider' usually refers to spiders of the family Linyphiidae, to which Salticus does not belong.
