This is an old observation so my memory of detail is a little sketchy. Shortly before this I was photographing what appears to be a female Panorpa communis and a comparison of the photos suggests that this is slightly smaller than that. The 3rd photo is the unedited version of the 2nd. The fence post on which it is perched is adjacent to a small bank with a hedge on top and there are both open fields and woodland nearby.

The eyes are odd, literally and figuratively! One appears to have a distinct white(ish) patch and the other is "normal"!
