This creature flew in through the open window into my lighted room late in the evening. It made a terrific racket, buzzing like a chainsaw at idle. I attempted to shepherd it back out, without success. When I got up, there it was floating drowned in the washing up bowl. I had assumed it was a Cockchafer, but this proved not to be the case when I had a close look. It was around 30mm long.
