I have been reading up on many of the little insect eaters and am surprised how many of them use spiders webs in their nest building. Undoubtedly spiders would also be food for the birds.
This has made me more aware of the links from one type of animal to the other. It is amazing how interlinked everything is in the environment.
I will be sure to leave the spiders in my garden well alone so they can continue to provide nesting material and food for the birds.
