      Hi All,
            My guess would be the common  Curculio glandium (Female) rather than nucum which is less common, unless you have a Hazel nut tree in the garden. It's almost impossible to tell from a photograph as you need to look at the setae (bristles) at the end of the abdomen.
       
      Cheers

      I do have pictures of almost all the curculio on my website: thewcg.org.uk

      Hello Kathleen, you are welcome.  I'm no expert I just find them, hopefully photograph them and then try find out what I've seen.  Soooooooooo much to learn lol. like all wildlife and nature so I'm not a specialist in any field.  I joined a group on facebook Insects of Britain and Northern Europe.  Some lovely helpful people on there.  Many of whom are cery helpful with ID.  The administrator Paul Brothers has even made a booklet for id-ing ladybirds.  So helpful and some amazing photography.  You should pop in and see it.
       
      Glad to be of help.  Happy bug hunting lol.  John
