If anybody has any better ideas over ID let me know. I also managed some other flies which were pretty cool including a Long-legged Fly of the family Dolichopodidae.
Last night I cracked 5k for the first time in my training for a 10k race in August. Seems to be going well although I run very slowly - the fact I run at all is pretty good as Im not particularly svelte! On my run I got a garden 2nd with 2 Oystercatchers overhead plus the Curlew, Grasshopper Warbler and plenty of thrushes. I also managed an owl treble with Little Owl, Tawny Owl & Barn Owl all heard. I am running for Macmillan as my Dad has terminal lung cancer. If anyone would like to support me I would be grateful.
