    Squatters.

    It appears that some squatters took up residence in our morning stick shed last Summer.

    Other than just looking at it I haven't investigated it - yet. It's just a bit larger than a rugger ball but I don't fancy trying a drop-kick. Anybody know if the queen will still be in there ?

    ​I am assuming it is a wasps nest, in which case it will be empty and not used again.
    Wouldn't be surprised to find some over wintering queens hiding in the pile though.

    There is enough morning sticks to last us 3 years in that shed and have two log sheds either side and one at the rear and they are all full so maybe I have provided lots of environmental benefits. I can feel the Stewardship payments hitting my bank account as I type.
