This fly which I have never seen before has suddenly infested all around Edinburgh from Tuesday this week. They are everywhere when it is sunny and disappear when it gets dull.
Was it largish? If so it could be a St Marks Fly (Bibio Marci). I too have seen many of these clumsy flies. They seem to crash land everywhere!
Hope this helps
There are other Bibio species, but this is B. marci indeed. The whitish wings are quite characteristic.
It still is B. marci.
Yes it certainly is and thanks for the information. I have lived here near Edinburgh for 50 tears and have never seen this fly before.
