Identification, please

Help please in identifying a bee/wasp in my garden. It was about 3cm long, rear end looked furry with brown and orange stripes. It had a very pronounced yellow stripe down its head. Unfortunately disappeared before I could get my camera! It was wasp shape, not like a bumble bee.

Identification requests

Just a reminder, that we don't normally deal with ID requests through BWARS forums. ID advice is available via iSPot.

 

Regarding your enquiry, I'm not sure you have a wasp there. Something with a furry rear end sounds like one of the wasp mimic moths such as hornet clearwing or similar.
