Tachinid Fly

Trixia conspersa (Diptera: Tachinidae), recognizable by the dark cross-veins on the wings and the small antennae.  Identification confirmed by Theo Zeegers here at Diptera.info.

I caught this specimen and took these two photos later at home.

First photo and specimen taken in Whiteknights Park, Reading, UK, on 2013-09-28.
