A wasp that came in through our bedroom window in mid-December: probably a common wasp, Vespula vulgaris (Hymenoptera: Vespidae).  A female because if the elongated  first anntennal segment.  Probably also a worker because it wasn't noticably large, and also because the queens are not usually out and about until the spring-time.  There is a very good article on identifying the commoner UK wasps  here at Eakring Birds.
