This drowsy little so and so had a go at me for no good reason. I'm guessing "wasp" but it would be nice to have a better name to mutter when I'm rubbing my arm.
It might be an idea to have a precautionary Piriton, this is the Horse Fly Haematopota pluvialis (I think). A biter not a stinger and personally I would far rather be stung by a wasp than bitten by one of these fellows.
Thanks Lewis, that makes more sense. There was some pain when it bit but I have a saucer-sized souvenir now..I'll steer clear of H. pluvialis in future.
