Dear Bugman,
Last night at dusk we spotted 2 of these flying fuzzy beetles approx. 2 inches long flying around our small back garden. At one point they landed and seemed interested in the underside of a pot of thyme herbs. This morning we found one photo attached) on the table outside. Keen to know what they are as we have never seen them before. Many thanks, A

    I might be off base here bugman but it looks like a postal code to me. It came up as a post code in England.
