    Default Asian Hornet any new sightings.

    Have there being any new sightings or reports of the Asian hornet this year in England/Scotland or Wales.
    I read something back in July where some have been found on the island of Jersey. But have any queens from the nests located last year survived.

    Its a link from last week about a nest on Jersey. Not seen much else apart from the stray that was found in the central belt of Scotland.

    I'm surprised we've heard nothing more from the Tetbury area as the two isolations near there suggest it was probably present for a year before being detected. The isolates were genetically related, but no closer than by the grandmother ...
