ID Confirmation - Chafer & Longhorn

ID Confirmation - Chafer & Longhorn:

Hi All,

I took the attached images whilst out at Maiden Castle a couple of weeks back and wondered if anyone could confirm the ID's for me please ? The images aren't the best; they were taken with my phone and the longhorn was only visible for 30 seconds at the most. So I understand if a definite ID isn't achievable.

Thanks,
Eric

That's great, thank for your assistance Steve.

There seems to be a huge number of Garden Chafers around at the moment. There's a thick hedge opposite Alyn Waters Country Park in Wrexham that was absolutely crawling with them.

Thanks again,
Eric
