Drone fly- Eristalis pertinax (female)

on blackthorn

Eristalis tenax (from a match the photo approach) I thought but it is apparently Eristalis pertinax female (Thanks Sandy)

 

So many hoverflies around at present- presumably the cold weather that is supposed to be coming will put an end to them.
