Pretty ordinary looking fly, but I wonder what it is? I know flies are difficult, but is it possible to say anything from a picture like this?
No interactions present.
It's possible to say that it is a flesh-fly, family Sarcophagidae, of which there are 60 British species, many of which require dissection for identification. Considered to be one of the more challenging fly families!

To me it's possible to go further and to say that it must belong to the tribe Sarcophagini (red eyes, striped body, large size etc) and most probably Sarcophaga sp. :)
i work as part of the RSPB and i ask any users of ispot to please iinform me of any birds found in London or Essex.
i appreciate any comments you give.
Hello, Becky. You can see observations of birds in the area you want by using the Observations menu and selecting the map. Then set a filter.
We will soon be introducing a Project function that will make it possible for you to create a page that will contain exactly what you want to see. This will be announced shortly, so watch for the news.
thank you very much i would appreciate that we have produced many maps and that will help thank you and please up date me as soon as you know more.
