On 29/09/11 I visited an area of heathland close to Bournemouth which is normally very good for Wasp Spiders. I'm not sure if I was just a little late in the season but I could only find one. Normally I'd have found a couple of dozen without too much effort.
I'd be interested to hear if anyone else has noticed a similar pattern? Although the summer hasn't been great in this area I don't feel it's been so awful that it would have harmed them. I guess the cold spell in December 2010 could have affected them. The only other thing that sprang to mind was the comparative lack of dragons and damsels from midsummer onwards (some of their favourite prey).
