Haematopota pluvialis - cleg-fly 09 07 03
Description:

This was photographed through a window, as far as I can remember, hence the view is from below. The image is also a little unsharp about the head, which may make it difficult to identify precisely. I believe it to be a Cleg, but I don't know which one.

Certainly a cleg, and

Certainly a cleg, and probably pluvialis. You also get crassicornis fairly regularly in that area, but less frequently.
