I was standing in the garden this afternoon, gazing around at the bare trees, as you do if you have nothing better to do, lol, and this caught my eye about 6 metres up in a tree. I thought it was a dove huddled in the branches but when it didn't move I went for a closer inspection. Then I went in for my camera and took this photo. I think its a wasps nest but to be in a tree that high off the ground didn't seem to be in character.

Anyone have any other ideas?

    A nest of some kind and I would say you are right. I wouldn't want to go near it! Good luck in sorting it out Jill.

    Looks like a wasps nest to me too. We had one on the back of our up and over garage door once - needless to say I ran a mile when I realised what it was and got Dad to come over and sort it out for me.

    I had a wasp nest just like that in my old garage. Mine had very little activity so I think it was quite new. It was @ the size of a grapefruit.

    This one is about the size and shape of a rugby ball Linda. We are debating whether to knowck it down and run - or leave it there.

    ITis similar to the two we found in our loft years ago. They were the size of rugby balls, there were a few dead wasps int he loft too which gave the game away. We paid a man to comr and deal with them!
