nice find

Can't believe that original price, I bought this set last year from Tesco and it was £5 then, never seen it at £20.97

I need to know now, does anything eat wasps?

voted hot - great spot OP

They are usually about £5 each, great books, very interesting. Great stocking filler

blackbirds, magpies, starlings and mammals (including stoats, weasels & mice). The main predator of wasps in Britain are badgers which have been known to destroy entire colonies

Great stocking filler... :santa:Cheers OP...:thumbsup:

Very interesting, thanks omoorej.

When driving, avoid those badgers!

I once ate a wasp! I thought it was a bit of fudge in an ice cream.

Didn't taste too bad!

BTW, great post! Good books these!

They are very, very good. You can get lost in a book for hours

Now out of stock- availability 4 or more weeks :P

dogs eat wasps or ours used to anyway

Fairly interesting books but disappointingly short and not nearly as authoritive as you might expect. Five quid the lot is a fair price, five quid each isn't.

good price out of stock for xmas now though

Try looking in branches of Fopp (if you have them), you might be surprised
