It’s just been confirmed that two Asian Hornets have been found in Dungeness in Kent over the weekend. One was on ivy in someone’s garden and the other was found at the Dungeness Bird Observatory.

Members of the Animal and Plant Health Agency have visited the sites to collect the hornets and Bee Inspectors are in the area setting traps.

The first hornet was found in a garden and lured down to a bait tray on Saturday 13th.


The second Asian Hornet ( in the main picture on this page ) was seen feeding on ivy at the Dungeness Bird Observatory on Sunday 14th October and was captured.
