Looks like the tachind fly Thelaira nigripes.
loathed as i am to disagree with Paul, but looks more like Eriothrix rufomaculata to me. Note long costal spine and shortly petiolate cel r4+5.
Fair enough. We all bark at the wrong tree every now and then. I guess the quoted size may have put me on the wrong foot as I think E. rufomaculata generally is smaller than 10 mm (but I am no tachinid expert).
Sorry if I mislead you on the size but I'm of an age where imperial is definitely more meaningful than metric and so my metric measurements are not always as accurate as they might be.....
Thank you for looking at this for me.
