Fly in hazel woodland

Fly photographed in woodland mainly made up out of hazel but also with ash and oak. Unfortunately I was not able to take any more photos without it flying away but I hope that this is a clear enough photo for identification. Thanks very much!

Hi James

Looks like Dexiosoma caninum (Tachinidae) - you don't usually have to wait too long before it will return it's chosen leaf

Regards, Neil
