This bug was crawling up the wall at the back of the house this afternoon. It is Megalonotus dilatatus, a species of groundbug (Lygaeidae).

This is a bruiser of a bug, a bug chunky heavyweight species, which is found in grassland and heathland habitats, though is not particularly common.

Also in the garden today was the soldier beetle Podabrus alpinus.
