I thought this was a native shield bug,but it was obviously too big. The field guides were not helpful but I found some other photos on the web.

Western Conifer Seed Bug (Leptoglossus occidentalis)

Hi

Almost certainly Western Conifer Seed Bug (Leptoglossus occidentalis)- this previusly uncommon visitor from America seems to have had a good year. I had two of them within a week on my house in Leicestershire last October.
