What are these large wasp like wood  favouring insects ?


I've seen other 'wood wasps' or Horntails before, but not these. Are they an Ichumenon wasp? I'm guessing these are male and female of the same species. We live in upland Carmarthenshire, and they've patrolled our large SDIM2176 (2).jpgSDIM2375 (2).jpgwood pile over the last 3 weeks, mainly at dawn and dusk. Would love to know what they are, and how common or rare they might be, The female is on a young Norway Spruce shoot tip , for scale.

Thanks, Julian
