This looked "unusual". Any id appreciated.
All photos added. The light silvery grey colour was what drew my attention to it.

Species with which Fly interacts

Possibly a Tachinid fly -

Looks like Dexia rustica in Chinery's guide, but I am not confident enough to offer this as a revision.

It's certainly a Tachinid - can you add some more photos to this observation please for more views.
