I discovered this ickle creature hiding in my potted potato plants…does anyone know what it is? Apologies for the blurry piccy, my camera’s not the best in the world, and the bug is about the size of a Ladybird.

Yep it’s a shield bug, they don’t do much harm to veg and the like but if you like your flowers perfect then look out. But I say live and let live (unless you are a slug on my veg then look out as my OH is a slug assassin).
