Could you help me please in identifying this fly (see attached) I photographed it today (26/05/14) in the mixed grassland margins of a wooded area at Potteric Carr nr Doncaster, South Yorkshire.
Your help with this would be most appreciated.
A Rhagio species. That's as far as I can get it. You could have a look through the ones here and see if you can decide which it is - http://www.diptera.info/photogallery.php?album_id=42&rowstart=30
I think that's a Snipe Fly, possibly Rhagio scolopacea? One of the haematophagous family of flies
