Bug query
I found this lovely bug in the gaden today, there are lots of them under a hawthorn hedge. Any idea?
Love the site

Hi Geoff,
Even though you are across the pond and I’m not always sure of the British bugs, I would venture a pretty sure guess that this is one of the Adelphocoris Plant Bugs, and most definitely one of the Family Miridae. These are soft bodied insects that are pests in the garden. The genus Adelphocoris is marked with green, orange-red, yellowish brown and black in bold patterns or stripes. It is found in crops, pastures and gardens.
