Hello everyone :-)

Well I need help in identifying this odd looking spider that was in my Garden the other day, looks possibly like a Mouse Spider but I don't know and would like to know!!

Yes I am female and no I am not afraid of spiders or bugs :-)

It looks like it might be a female Badumna insignis.

Aaagh spider run and I'm a guy. If this is a mouse spider does that mean it can kill mice. If that's so then it's one MF.

Not a Magpie, moth, a Small Magpie. It's very common in the southern half of Britain, becoming less so further north, and flies in June and July. The larva feeds from a rolled or spun leaf in August and September before hibernating in a tough silk cocoon in a hollow stem or under bark. Pupation occurs in May in the same cocoon, without further feeding.
The Magpie Moth is a medium-sized moth which is quite butterfly like in appearance. It is on the wing during summer when it can be frequently found in gardens, as well as woodland, scrub and heather moorland. The Magpie Moth overwinters as a caterpillar and pupates in late spring. Widespread in England, Wales and the lowlands of Scotland.
The intriguing thing is the fact that it's flying NOW - it's far too early for it! Can't help with the spider I'm afraid, beyond my expertise.
