Hawthorn Shieldbug - minus one antenna
Birch Catkin Bug
Drymus sylvaticus - attracted to Nichola's yellow car
Pine Ladybird - one of at least five loitering on this variegated bush on the front garden
'Pollen Beetle' - Meligethes aeneus s.l.

Philonthus cruentatus perhaps?
Sadly I was potless whilst pottering about and it flew after this brief shot
