Hornet Robberfly

Britain's largest fly - the Hornet Robberfly (Asilus crabroniformis) - is a scarce and declining species but can be found across Surrey at a number of sites. Yesterday, on White Downs, Gordon and I found two individuals, one of them characteristically perching on Belted Galloway dung.
