Woundwort Shieldbug

Found yesterday in the garden by Loren and we were not sure what it was. approx the size of a small ladybird around 6mm and did not realise it was a shield bug until we checked the photos.

They feed on Hedge Woundwort and White Dead Nettle.

Apparently quite common but have never seen one before.
