I don't know where to start with this one, but its quite common at the moment in these gardens. It has an orange brown but clearly dark-banded abdomen. with white hairs on the dark thorax. The holly leaves got in the way a bit, but seem to provide a warm sheltered spot for a range of insects, including Eristalis spp.
