Tachinid Fly

A grey Tachinid fly with noticably darkened wing-veins: probably a Ramonda spathulata (Diptera: Tachinidae).  Identification suggested by Chris Raper and Erikas 'neprisikiski' at Diptera.info.  Also, probably a female because of the relatively large gap between the eyes (see here to compare the gap in male and female).
