A beetle, probably Hoplia philanthus (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae).  The garden chafer, Phyllopertha horticola, looks similar and is reported to be more common but I think H. philanthus is the better match for these photos.

Photos taken in the field below Chazey Wood, near Caversham, UK, on 2011-06-14.
