  • I saw this on the Buddleia outside the Visitors Centre.

  • Hi Nick, It looks to me like Volucella zonaria sometimes known as the hornet mimic hoverfly. I'm not an expert so you might want to wait for further opinions

     

  • Ok! Thanks Teejay

  • Let's hope I'm right, Nick.

    Incidentally, although I appreciate your local patch is Minsmere there's nothing to stop you joining in on the Main Forum which is where I mostly post. We see everything that's posted including all the groups.
