Well, big spiders for Britain anyway. Virtual cache as I doubt I'll get permission for anything else but I'll try.

This cache is within the Redgrave and Lopham Fen on the Norfolk / Suffolk border. The fen is home to the Fen Raft Spider, the biggest, and one of the rarest, spiders in Britain. It is only found in two places in the country so tread carefully! The adult female grows to 2cm body and 7cm leg span.

The fen is managed by the Suffolk Wildlife Trust and with the work done by the vounteers and the trust it wouldn't exist any more.

The cache is on one of the walks around the fen and to claim a log just email the number at the position to me.

The wildlife here is very wide and varied. It includes Foxes, The Fen Raft Spider, Deer, Woodpeckers, and if your very lucky the odd Otter.

A lot of work has gone into rescuing this fen so I would stress that there is absoloutly no need to go off the paths for this cache. It's not meant to be hard but to encourage you to go a visit a wonderfully peaceful place.

There is a visitor centre on site with lots of information available. No charge is made for the visiting but you may like to make a donation on your way out.

Don't forget to look for the spiders!

We set off across Norfolk to try and log our first opencaching.uk cache. This was the nearest one to us and we thought we had a good chance of nabbing it as it was a virtual. After parking at the carpark we first of all started on the nearby Terracache but failed to find the second stage. However only slightly detered we carried on around the walk seeing geese, deer sparrowhawk and a large grass snake. Whilst we rounded the fen on our walk I had gathered an idea from the hint of what we might be looking for at the co-ordinates. We arrived at the geozone and I saw a likely object somewhat the worse for wear. But disaster I couldn't see the required number no matter how hard I looked. We scoured the area for other possibilities with no joy. Good job it's a nice place as 2/2 dnfs dosn't look good. More disaster later as we went into Diss to get some lunch and try the Earthcache. One of the waypoints wasn't accessable due to building works. Caching armageddon :(.

On returning home I looked at the photos I had taken while on site in case they would reveal anything. Joy Oh Joy! A magic number appeared on one of them. I would swear that it wasn't visable when we were at the co-ordinates. But who cares if it means you can log the cache :)

Thanks for the cache and a lovely walk. No spiders seen though. Possibly just as well!

Logging on Navicache as well as listed there also. E-mail will be sent to CO

Another Navicache bagged whilst on the trail of a Terracache! At first we thought the information required to claim this cache had gone, but GZ was not a logical location for it. Then a moment later, we saw the intended information a little way off. Given the age of this cache it's not surprising as my first GPSr was lousy under trees and any waypoint I'd made could easily have been 100 feet out! New GPSr is much better so will send my coordinates with the claim info.

Our 3rd Icenians cache. Why we've been caching for 8 months and it has taken us this long to discover the pleasure of Iceanians caches we don't know. Came here with Yoda the dog who had a great time yomping around (on his lead). Close to the visitor's centre it was very busy but as we strayed closer to the Suffolk border there were none to be seen. Possibly it was the sound of banjos wafting up from Botesdale that scared them off. Yep I watched Deliverance last night too! many thanks for yet another cache done with panache, not at all what we thought we had come to find. TFTC

found today after a very pleasant walk among the wildlife (and the odd geomuggle!). Have been unable to contact Cacher! to claim the find (perhaps they would contact me?). I wont put my answer here as it will spoil it for others.
