Insect Identification

Please see the attached photo.
It's body would fit in a 1" circle, it has wings and was on my kitchen window this morning.
Has anyone any idea what it is?
BTW those extensions just behind it's head are not the wings.

Ha!  Smiley  Wasn't suggesting we've got a monopoly on them; always thought they're pretty much countrywide.
Useful things as (according to Wiki) their larvae eat bindweed
