We have hornets nesting in the roof. One of them got into the bathroom last night and was furiously bumping itself against the light fitting. I slipped on a latex glove, trapped it in a hand towel and bundled it out the window. It came straight back in. We repeated this action four times. On the fifth incursion it brought a friend with it. This got me really annoyed- and a little scared- and maybe I moved a little faster- because this time I slammed the window shut before either of them could return.

My mother has a buddleia. I went over to admire it yesterday and found it full of bees and butterflies. I counted at least four red admirals.
