Hornet & wasps

Bit of a shock emptying the moth box this morning when I found a Hornet in one of the egg boxes. Never seen one before but it is unmistakable ....



... and huge compared to the regular Common and German Wasps that visit the garden. On Thursday, I split an apple and threw it on the garden for the blackbirds, but they didn't get a look-in. I don't know where they came from but within minutes both halves of the apple were covered in wasps. Within 24 hours the apple had been reduced to a thin, almost transparent, peel layer.
