Small black beetles - ID required please

There are a number of very small (c.15mm to 20mm long) black beetles feeding on the pollen of our sunflower flowers. They do not appear to be doing any damage to the flowers. They are also good fliers. I've attached a photo that's about as close-up as I could get


Hoping someone can identify them for me






Following my ID request I've continued to searching for a possible answer and I've now come up with Pollen Beetles (Meligethes aeneus) - so is that what these are?
