Fly Identification please

Hi,

I've had a look around but can't seem to find anything that tells me what this is. Does anyone have any ideas? Sorry I don't have anything looking down onto it.

If it's any help it was in Epping Forest, by a pond.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks to Lindsey and Chris for the information.
I saw my first literally an hour after reading this post yesterday morning.
Field margin adjacent to Cransley Reservoir, Northants, one on umbellifer.
