Wasp nest after badger raid

A badger has obviously raided this nest for the larvae: you can see remnants of the paper construction material. The residents were not feeling sociable as a result.

Not Vespa

Just to add: Vespa is the genus name that is applied to hornets - though they are of course also social wasps.
