Found this nest in the lanes. Not the common wasp we see this time of year, and they are smaller than ours. A quick search and the nearest I got was "German Wasp" Anyways Gave me quite a buzz finding it, no stinging comments please.
Couldn't have blamed them if they'd been fighting mad by now. What a shame - but they don't show any signs of moving so presumably they're planning on rebuilding. Not a sound plan if the badger takes it into his head to return again. Very interesting, Willpar.
Talking to a couple who were there when I took the video, they have been watching the nest for a while. But the bloke reckons the queen is still there somewhere, or the workers would have left. So they must be guarding the queen.
