9th Aug...........Vuvuzela hover fly

Nothing new in the trap mothwise, plenty of rainwater tho, but lately I am being plagued by wasps. 70 plus wasps in two traps the previous night and 30 plus in the one trap last night. At first glance I thought I had a hornet in the trap but it turned out to be a large hover fly. I havent noticed one of these in the garden before. Pictured alongside a Common Wasp for size comparison is a VOLUCELLA ZONARIA which sounded more like a Vuvuzela as it flew away !
