I've tried the bee identification guide but no joy, i'm thinking its a carder bee but it looks different to the others i see?
The other is an insect with an extremely long tail!
I'm not sure about the Bee but the other insect is one of the Ichneumon wasps. Almost impossible to say which one as there is no size mentioned and the photo could be clearer. The long tail is an ovipositor.
Hi habdab – the length was approx 12 – 14 cm including the tail. I’ve just been and measured the water butt it landed on! Location is Cornwall. I’ll upload a better picture, hopefully!
