Wasp Nests.

Mike Averill, Bill Foxall and myself busied ourselves, today, pollarding old, knarly, bent, twisted, and wood worm infested willow trees that have many holes, nooks, crannies, and splits in their trunks. I mentioned a couple of times my surprise at not having encountered wasp or hornet nests, only to find that I was sitting on top of one. All the tree rocking, banging and falling of many long branches, failed to worry the wasps; they continued flying in and out of the nest without giving us a second thought.

Sometimes a nest is full of non aggressive wasps, whilst another is  full of the very aggressive variety.
