As I live quite near Rogiet Countryside Park I often nip down there just for an hour, to see what is happening. Whilst I was down there in the summer something gave me a good old bite on the leg, through my heavy duty trousers. I didn’t feel it at the time but when I returned home I found that I had three quite large bites on my right calf. So that was about the end of August. I am still trying to get rid of them, I think I am on my third lot of different ointments and potions!
But there are some really quite nice and quite aggressive flies down there so I guess I will have to take more care in future.
This was a shot of one I saw today, I haven’t ID’d it yet but thought you may be interested.
