Large grey spider carrying egg sac. Initially seen ‘sunbathing on bramble leaf, very relaxed! I believe this is the Nursery Web Spider, Pisaura mirabilis. Length of thorax and abdomen approx. 15mm. I am used to seeing stripe along length of body but this individual had stripe along cephalothorax only. There appeared to be a ‘web nursery’ nearby with lots of other spiderlings which appeared to be same species (see last photo). Would really appreciate a determiner ID.
