ID comment

It looks like a Squash Bug late instar nymph but I'm having trouble seeing enough detail in the images.

Can I ask a favour, could you over-lighten an image and upload it to this post.

Thanks Chris,

A couple of images added with contrast and brightness changed. Hope this helps and is what you meant - I haven't tried playing about with any images before!

Squashbug nymph

A nymph of Coreus marginatus? - Dock Bug.
I saw a couple yesterday on our patch.

Dock Leaf Bug - Coreus

Dock Leaf Bug - Coreus marginatus as Grant suggests. There have been a lot of these around nearby and the shape is distinctive.
