No, not a Channel 5 programme pitch, but a fierce, yet silent, night time battle to the death, fought out recently at The Secret Acre.
There are apparently over 110 species of digger wasp in Britain, who’d have thought it, one of which decided to nest near our greenhouse earlier this year. Out of the way doing no harm we decided to leave them to their own devices.
Little did we know that our local badgers had other ideas. We awoke one morning to discover the remains of the silent overnight battle to the death.
The badger won. One wasps nest excavated and consumed!
Eat your heart out David Attenborough!
