We also saw one of these not so wee beasties in the Green Welly car park. Initially it landed on the old girl:eek!: before flying down to the floor. Thanks to John and Tate on Twitter I now know it’s a Uroceras Gigas- Giant Wood Wasp. An impressive insect.

Wouldn’t like that on my “nethers” Rich. :-O

Spectacular creature.
Would think it has to be one of the largest among the insects of the British Islands. Suspect it would be very disconcerting to have it land on one.
