The Wasps have got a taste for the currants we put out for the Blackbirds. There were about 20, so I didn't stay long !

I think the wasps have departed - haven't seen any around the box for a week or so and can't hear any activity in there :)

None came in the house :shake: :D

They certainly looked after it, Nuthatch, it's almost as good as new. The dismantling should be fascinating.

A fascinating construction :nod: I'm glad to have been proven wrong about them being a pest in your house but I do think you have been very lucky. :nod:
