Dorset, United Kingdom
I was really quite happy to have found a bees nest in my garden at the weekend - in the bird nesting box. Great fun watching the bees coming and going (from a safe distance!), however, when I had a wander round the garden this morning - I found wasps using the nest, coming and going. Is it possible for bees and wasps to build nests together? Do they share the same nest? Have the wasps driven the bees away? The view of the inside is quite limited due to the nest box location, but I can just make out a greyish coloured nest inside, approximately 6" - 8". Here's a photo to help with the answers.
