first hoverfly of the year

Back in my Forest School this afternoon, the sun was gloriously shining down on us and the forest was a lovely sun trap. I have a pile of large logs from the trees that were 'accidentally' cut down 3 years ago. Last year this log pile attracted a pair of Wrens, sussing it out as a suitable nesting site but it didn't happen.
The only creature that was seen today was 1 hoverfly. I have yet to identify the species ; we do have a book of insects but  I am so tired after an early start today, I will let you know in due course. But here is a photo in case there are any experts out there !
