We have bats (serotine) in the loft, and while I was out at dusk watching for them to appear from the eaves, I noticed a few hornets buzzing around up there. Same again tonight, so I’m wondering if there’s a nest. Google just comes up with pest control companies telling me to kill anything that moves, but I’m generally okay with sharing my space! I find hornets quite fascinating and I spotted one buzzing around the pond yesterday. Just wondering if they might be causing any kind of damage to either the loft or the bats?

Birding is for everyone no matter how good or bad we are at it,enjoy it while you can
Looks like the hornets and the bats got together, and got Isy...
