Wing veination torn Grounded on wayside pathway flying poorly
No interactions present.
This is a tachinid. No syrphid has bristles and venation like this. Maybe a worn Tachina ursina, but someone will give a more certain name, I expect.
Coming to the end of its flight period about now and most that I am seeing locally are very ragged, like this. It's a species of early spring and one of the commonest March flies on local heathland.
