Some movement caught my eye in my seaside garden this week, little insects playing about on the sand.
It turned out to be tiny Spiny Digger Wasps engaged in their amazing burrow creation. Here, they provision nesting burrow with flies that they carry about like a backpack on their stings!
But I realised that words weren't quite going to convey the action, so the only solution was to make a little one-and-a-half minute video of the action that I hope you enjoy here.
Quite what many of the smaller creatures get up to right under our noses beggars belief!
