Got a shot of this little chap. I have no idea what it's called. The wind was blowing the flower about, and even holding it still meant leaning all over the flower bed with bees and wasps near my face. I'm getting very brave, lol.
Turns out there were two of them on the same flower, although I didn't know that at first.
I would guess they are about half a cm, maybe.

I've googled all bugs with a V on the back and I can't find one that's the same.

If you are still wondering have a look at Lygus maritimus or its similar species in the Miridae family. They look about right...

Found this shot on my SD card. It's not great, but it was a bit windy.
