Found 20th Oct 2015
was on my car bonnet yesterday. seemed very dosile, I nudged it off with a paper and it just fell to the floor and stayed a while, I went back bout half hour later and it had gone.

looks like a long wasp, about 1.5-2" in length, simalar to a mud wasp but its abdomen doesnt look seperate like the mud wasp!

Do you have a pic? Could be a hornet?

It's not. The abdomen is completely wrong and that species isn't found in the UK.
A species of wasp that has never been recorded in the country has been discovered at a British nature reserve.

The parasitic wasp, Lymantrichneumon disparis, now known to be a genus and a new species to Britain, was found by a butterfly collector at the RSPB’s Broadwater Warren near Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent.

Well, M. Hollande and his European cronies would probably be happy to see the UK absorbed into the French mainland but last time I looked that hadn't happened.

So, yes. Really.
