Large hoverfly on buddleia. Looks a bit like a Sericomyia sp. maybe?
No interactions present.
It's interesting that Wikipedia reckons it's only found in the south and south-east. Have they been moving north this year with the warm summer?
I see you are from Coventry, was it seen near there ? Unfortunately the location widget is not working on iSpot at the moment.

Yes Chris, I saw it in Chapelfields, which is in the west of the city...
In which case NBN records show sightings in your area and even to the north of you.
Thanks Chris. I hadn't thought of looking on NBN.
