The tachinid (?) with it in the photo below hasn't been ID'd. The pinpunculid was my 100th lifer of the year too.
Another new for county was the weevil Hadroplontus litura, which according to NBN is the northernmost British record.
As is typical for this time of year I'm now quickly becoming overrun with more specimens than I have time to ID but I can do just about enough to keep it mostly under control and keep the numbers moving.
Ferdinandea cuprea was a nice new hover fly for me in the morning sunshine today.
