The first and only time ive ever seen this was out on a boat on harelaw. I suspect they came off the island. We were seeing loads of them just floating by in the breeze on long threads of silk. Was really cool.
Let me ask you one question. Is your money that good. Will it buy you forgiveness. Do you think that it could. I think you will find When your death takes its toll All the money you made Will never buy back your soul.

I've seen this quite a few times, but I didn't know the little buggers do this on purpose to move around. That's scary. lol

These sheep were feeding in a field of spiders. There were webs in the hedges too. It must have been migration time.

Not just baby spiders do it. Got some pics somewhere of quite largish spiders festooning my rods one misty night whilst barbeling.
Will try one dig them out
