Turned over a pine log these were on the under side 10-12 of them, some flew away while others scuttled away. They are about 5mm long excluding antenna and aprox 2-3mm wide. My first thought was ladybirds but the body shape seems more pointed, so any suggestion welcome. There were found in logs piled up under some trees in a small wooded area on the Salisbury Plain Training area. The log piles look like there put there on purpose for conservation reasons.
