Episyrphus

Incredibly common in the UK in late summer, as large numbers of migrants arrive, most years. It's easy to identify because no other UK hoverfly has the combination of paired black bands on the abdomen (one thick + one thin). Huge numbers must also pass north through the CI, most years, I would imagine.
