Thanks to those of you who helped provide or confirm IDs to the inverts I posted on Sunday. Kept this one back to try to ID myself before posting but photos were not really good enough to key it out. From just looking through the field guide Melangyna cincta or Meliscaeva cinctella seem possible candidates. I'm aware that it may be impossible to even ID to genus from these photos, but have posted in hope rather than expectation!
