I saw this at Strumpshaw Fen on Wednesday and haven't been able to identify it. Can you help?
It is indeed very handsome and it goes by the name of Volucella pellucens.
The gist of its biology can be found on the website of the Hoverfly Recording Scheme here: http://www.hoverfly.org.uk/viewtopic.php?t=46
Thankyou! Good to know what it is, now I just have to remember that name.
