Hi,
I had this very large bug with furry antenna come into my living room last night , I thought at first it was a moth but on inspection its wings were solid and very beetle like . I have never seen one before . Please could you let me know what it is .

Dear Lisa,
This Cockchafer or Billy Witch is a European Scarab beetle whose populations were on the decline in the UK, but in recent years, there seems to be a new surge in the population.
