I was working in Hornsea, England today and this insect paid us a visit on a rooftop, clung to a roll of roofing felt. As we had no idea what it was, we were wondering if we could find out what it is!

Dear Michael,
This is a harmless Giant Wood Wasp,
Urocerus gigas, and we just finished posting an image of a Giant Wood Wasp from Ireland.

Thanks very much for your response, really appreciate the reply!
Very best wishes,
