Please let me know if you can not open the video clip of the insect and I will try to attach a photo- Thanks
Hello Harry. It looks as though it could be a Bee Fly (Bombylius major). Hope this is some help.
Thank you. I was worried incase it was an insect that might lay its egss on its host.
It is a bee-fly; harmless to humans and dogs, but a good pollinator - so let him go, he has work to do!

He is alraedy back in the garden where he belongs. Many thanks for all your help.
