Tachinid Fly

A member of the Exorista rustica species group (Diptera: Tachinidae) feeding on wild carrot (Daucus carota).  These are very common at he moment, indeed today I saw more of these than I did of Eriothrix rufomaculata.

Note the long lines of bristles that runs down each side of the yellowish face.
