Oh my gosh, I decided to crawl into a book a friend lent me and its so good. Unfortunately (or not so unfortunately) I was reading it on my way to school this morning and in my daze I accidentally got onto the F instead of the E and ended up being like an hour late to school.
In May, the seafaring lesser noddies head for land to breed. Their arrival on the tiny island of Cousine in the Seychelles coincides with peak web size for the red-legged golden orb-web spiders. The female spiders, which can grow to the size of a hand, create colossal conjoined webs up to 1.5 meters in diameter in which the tiny males gather. These are woven from extremely strong silk and are suspended up to six meters above the ground, high enough to catch passing bats and birds, though it’s flying insects that the spiders are after. Noddies regularly fly into the webs. Even if they struggle free, the silk clogs up their feathers so they can’t fly.
