Thanks Harbo but Ladybird larva are matt black & orange & do not have wings, which also do a funky defensive move when disturbed- this seems to be an adult beetle with blue wing casing that just wonders about a bit.

I've a sinking feeling about this..

Paul McCartney without his makeup on maybe :mrgreen:
If only McCartney was this quiet..

I've gone through Wikipedia & the Ernst Joyce bible & so far so good - nothing matches up.. so far.

On gardeners world last week or the week before they were discussing blue, and green beetles which are becoming common on a certain plant, though for the life of me I can't remember which plant it was. The programme might be on the Iplayer still. But they looked a lot like those.
How big are they?

That is one of 10 suspects I've checked online & crossed off as not matching in looks.

DWB looks a bit like an acorn with legs..if you are on drugs & 1/2 blind..
