Can someone help identify what this "bee" / bug this is?

Thanks Farmageddun.  Although I am still not convinced it is. 

MANDY - It does look more like the short haired but to me is bigger than the pictures I've seen, do you (everyone) think I should reply to NHM saying I don't think it is?

Hi all

I was wondering whether you could help me identify this tree, it is growing in my neighbours garden, I have dug up a seedling and would love to know what the tree is, the leaves are very soft

 

thanks

Ok I will give it a go with NHM now, wish me luck.

At the time my friend said to me you should contain it as it looked unusual, I thought it may be an import via cargo, it was very docile and looked like it couldn't fly very well.

Thanks all, I have searched through many websites and also agree that it is not a carder bees.  I spend a lot of time looking at the bees, etc.

After researching hornets, wasps, sawflies, there is nothing like this I can find.

It is definitely not a hornet, I wish I could have got a better photo, as the shape is completely wrong, also after researching the european carder bee and other carder bees, the marking are not close and the size is wrong.

Welshonion - most definitely at least 2 inches, the mesh is an inch square and on the 3rd picture it shows diagnally that it covers 2 squares

Waterbutts - I definitely live in Britain - Bristol.

Dove - I was researching on the NHM website and was considering contacting them but thought that maybe I don't have good enough pictures

I didnt realise how many types of bees etc there are, after reading about bees, wasps etc tonight, I think that this bee could have been a parasitic bee of the bombus genus. I would really love to know though
