Episurphus on Fleabane
Description:

In my few years on Teesside, these have usually been the commonest of the hoverflies seen. This year, they've been massively upstaged by Eristalis and, to a lesser extent, Helophilus.

I agree, they have been very thin on the ground all summer round here (Vale of York).

They were active early this

They were active early this year here in Leicester, so perhaps they were caught by the cold & wet weather after the drought.
