'Long nosed' Hoverfly?

I had stopped to look at an isolated patch of Marsh Woundwort - Stachys sylvatica - when I noticed this fly with the striking orange/chestnut coloured abdomen. I know little about flies but it seems it has to be Rhingia campestris - unless my Collins Complete British Insects is not as 'complete' as it claims!!!!
