It turns out it's not a Hoverfly Mystery

I watched these insects in my Suffolk garden this afternoon, and would be delighted if anyone can tell me what is going on. Is this a hoverfly nest, please? (Update, I now know it isn't.) I know very little about hoverflies. 

Update: many thanks to Crafty Green Poet for informing me that these are not hoverflies. Please see her comment. 

P.S. You can find my butterfly-related #30DaysWild post for Day 20 here.

Hi Caroline, they're not hoverflies, they're probably wasps, though they could be cuckoo bees.
