  • Holly Faulkner, Project Assistant says:

    Hi T, the nest you have photographed was made by a type of wasp. Likely a paper wasp. These nests vary in size and shape, and are often found in trees – which is why they’re so easy to spot this time of year when the leaves are down. I hope this is helpful!
