What eats cockchafers?

I have recently become a fan of the cockchafer beetle. What a magnifiscent creature, though I know it's a pest. I understand that the numbers are recovering since the ban of the worst pesticides by the EU. I wonder if these beetles are an important food for any threatened bird species? Or indeed other animals? Also does anyone know where I might see them in the region of Whitstable, East Kent?

 

Many thanks! Susy P
