Almost 100% rather young sycamore trees. Below Newnham Windmill.
There were pines and oaks at the woodland edge. 15 August, 2018
I was surprised to find a rather dozy Hornet, Vespa crabro, in the litter and even more so when I found a second one a few metres away. What were they doing there? Apart from their size the amber projections at the rear of the thorax make them easily distinguished from 'true' wasps, which belong to the genus Vespula.
