Some of the crunchy cave spiders in the North Centre Bastion on the Western Heights, Dover, UK.

The North Centre Bastion, part of Dover's Napoleonic defenses, is otherwise known as 'The Smokey' or 'Dead Man's Island'.

This photo was taken on a trip with Mandy Whall, Phil Eyden, Alasdair Peacock, Roy Jeffery and myself on Sunday, 12th of July, 2009.

There's now a three-part video of the North Centre Bastion available on YouTube:

Part 1: The Smokey, North Centre Bastion, Western Heights, Dover UK

Part 2: The Smokey, North Centre Bastion, Western Heights, Dover UK

Part 3: The Smokey, North Centre Bastion, Western Heights, Dover UK

Part 3 has a 5-second shot of a cave spider and its large teardrop-shaped eggsac - if you like that sort of thing, that is :)

I've uploaded Dover Castle from the Detached Bastion, Western Heights, Dover UK to this website, but other photos from the trip can be seen on My Flickr website in the Western Heights folder, or just click on this "NCB 12th July, 2009" tag.

If you like spiders, I've just uploaded a photo of a Garden Orb spider and its Prey (taken in Cowgate Cemetery Nature Reserve).
