Fly ID

 Cheilosia sp? First I'll add my feeble attempt at an id and then check with UK Hoverflies.
Neoascia interrupta- A rare one!  (UK Hoverflies ID HERE
 Eristalinus sepulchralis
 Sphaerophoria sp
 Myathropa florea- Easy one with 'Batman' marking on thorax 
 Cheilosia pangana 
 Helophilus pendulus
 Cheilosia sp? No this is Pipiza.
 Dark-edged Bee Fly mating
Early Mining Bee- Andrena Haemorrhoa 

Sunny (The Simpsons Sky) conditions today with a prevailing south west wind- usually means very quiet for birds at the farmlands. The nets were quiet, a couple of Whinchat, a few Sand Martins going through, a White Wagtail and a couple of Common Sandpipers.

Therefore I headed off to the path along the North Lake for a bit of fly action. BEDDINGTON HOVERFLIES UPDATED
