Hornet's Nest

I popped round to see some friends yesterday, and they proudly showed me this hornet's nest built out of an owl box on their neighbour's wall. This is not small. The sound of hundreds of hornets working away, a mixture of buzzing and a sort of crunching sound as they construct their paper walls is not to be forgotten. Fabulous.

  1. Have they been building this nest all summer ? I have only seen one hornet in the UK this year, loads in France where we were surrounded by woods.
