Final day today of this short break. Spent some more time recording the garden wildlife in between doing a bit of tree work and a visit to Kazanlak- the nearby town. So far photo-logged the following just in the Balkep back garden (will be a bit of winter work trying to identify them all) :

Bees, Wasps, Sawflies and Ants: 30+ species
Beetles: 35+ species
Butterflies and Moths: 38+ species
Dragonflies and Damsleflies: 2 species
Grasshoppers, Crickets and Locusts: 10 species
Bugs: 18+ species
Flies: 39+ species
Other: 4 species

Hoping to come back in early spring to explore the forests in this area.

The fly looks like a Tachinidae of the genus Cylindromyia.
