Quiet Morning At The Hornets’ Nest.

All quiet at the hornets’ nest this morning; Spike was indifferent to it. My camera was ready to shoot, so I couldn’t pass without trying to get  a hornet image. When I tap the tree trunk with my fingernail, a … Continue readin...

Trouble At Home.

The hornet saga continues: Spike was sat to attention a good three metres away from the hornets’ nest tree when I arrived there this morning. He was looking up at the nest entrances and making soft woofing noises. There was a … Continue...

Scaredy Cat Hornets.

Passing the hornets’ nest this evening, I shone my torch in both entrances; there wasn’t movement in either. I suspected, though, that there might be a few hornets still holed-up somewhere in the nest. I wondered if this might be goo...

Wasp Nests.

Mike Averill, Bill Foxall and myself busied ourselves, today, pollarding old, knarly, bent, twisted, and wood worm infested willow trees that have many holes, nooks, crannies, and splits in their trunks. I mentioned a couple of times my surpris...
