fly

Observation - fly. Description: Brown fly seemed to hide in leaf litter in mixed pine broadleaf woodland along the west coast of France but I'm sure I've also seen these in the New Forest, Hampshire, UK. They would fly up behind me and attach! Very persistent and difficult to dislodge.

Brown fly seemed to hide in leaf litter in mixed pine broadleaf woodland along the west coast of France but I'm sure I've also seen these in the New Forest, Hampshire, UK. They would fly up behind me and attach! Very persistent and difficult to dislodge. Very resistant to swatting or even squashing! Appx 10mm long, squat thick legs. Seem to prefer woodland to open ground or neighbouring beach.
