Hi guys, just wondered if anyone knows what this is?
Thanks for your help.

Its a wasp of some kind, I'll get back if I come up with a more accurate answer, but I don't have a good wasp field guide so dont hold your breath.
Thanks for your help Paul, if it helps it was about 2 inches long, it also had two bits at the back that looked like what I can only describe as antennae! It had five legs and looked liked it has lost one on the left side. Here was me thinking that it was some sort of beetle! Strange the things you get yourself into through photography!
See comment on shot Tracy....
I know I'm such an anorak!
Those dangly bits on the tail help, your insect is a parasitic Ichneumon wasp of which there are over 2000 species found in the UK, so I am unable to pin it down to the exact species.
I think not Paul, but who am I to argue....
On the other hand I could be totally wrong and its osmans Sonefly although I cant find any pictures of that Stonefly showing those orange markings.
This might help
Fight yer over it.....LOL
No, I think I have as much chance of being right as Man U have of winning the premiership
Sorry Paul.....See last comment on Tracy's picture, I have the book in front of me....
BTW I'm a big wuss really, just ask anyone who knows me
feeling like I've given the green light for a whole shed load of abuse now
Cor Ade, i'm impressed.. Sue must have been reading to you to get that far into the book .
I might have known you'd pipe up!........Cheeky swine!
Whatever do you mean... lol..
While the entymologists are around, could anybody give me the name of this one please?
