Llanerch Wood 05/06/2016

My walk around the ponds was interrupted by a very big flying object which took me by surprise at first as this is the first time I have seen one for a very long time. After watching it going through the process of collecting nesting material I finaly got a photo.

A very big Queen hornet, I estimated 4 to 5cm.
The sad thing is because of where it was I had to go and report it to the land owner and after showing him where it was he said that it would more than likely not be there the next time I visit.

  1. Quite scarce in Glamorgan I think. They were nesting in Bute Park this year but I fear that nest may have been destroyed. It's a shame they have a bad reputation as they're usually quite docile.
