Green Bottle Fly

Observed: 5th July 2013 By: aw397aw397’s reputation in Invertebratesaw397’s reputation in Invertebrates

Small Fly on a leaf. I identified it as Lucilia Caesar but I am unsure about this. Are there more than one Lucilia ?
Another question for an expert, on the NBN database there aren't any records for this in the Edinburgh area at all. Is this a rare fly ?
