That would be a good find, as it is only found in one place in England, on the North York Moors! I suspect that this is a Microchrysa.

I clicked on recommended and that's what I got. I shall have to look closer next time. Thanks Ian.
It's odd how 'recommended' seems to have one or two species that it likes to suggest. It likes to suggest Hornet Robberfly and Broads Doli fly, too, if you go for those families.
I know what you mean and often see two or more suggestions and as I have little knowledge about insects etc, I tend just to leave a simple common name and let folks like yourself help me out with and ID and when I do take a chance, I am often quickly corrected and that is why I enjoy iSpot as I learn a little bit more each year. Forget the icons that I have gained, it is purely mass over knowledge.
Doing OK Robert !! Its a better man or woman that takes a close look and you have put a very respectable selection up this morning supported with good imaging Keep up the good work - there is simply just too much we dont know !!!

If I am ever down that way, I might have a look at the Chine, as you really do find a lot of good species down there. It's very nice up here near York, but you have so many more species than we do!
Out of all the places that I go, the chine has been the most interesting and of course not too far from home. For more than two years I have been photographing the species, entering the sightings on a database and used my old Garmin hand held to place the sightings. I have just donated copies of the lot to a local natural history society and the laugh is, is that I am an old man playing with my toys and enjoying it. However, this area, just up from Hengistbury Head gets quite a few migrants going through and as can be seen from all my 'spots' there is a huge variety in the area and how much of it do I see - a fraction I guess.
For an old man playing with his toys...you are doing all right! ;)
