indoor wildlife 22.3.16

Late in the evening my daughter found a spider in the house! She traps it in one of my moth specimen tubes and gets her book out to identify it. Although before she opens the book she examines it again and says "It's a mouse spider". Photo below.
We do find this species in the book and it seems to be right. We do get several of these inside throughout the year. Through her interests in the different species spiders we have learned to catch them, identify and then release outside.
This was my only wildlife posting today (22/3/16).  Another quiet day. Really am hoping it will start picking up very soon.
