Wall with limestone mortar Habitat (Wandlebury NR)

This wall is a great habitat, the limestone mortar is a soft material and is often dug out by some types of bee as you can see by the holes in the photo. Red and blue mason bees would nest here along with other bees and wasps.

I saw Blue mason bees , a queen hornet looking for a nesting site , the Pompilidae type of wasp looking and catching its prey and a Sapyga-quinquepunctata wasp which uses Mason bees as their host.
