Looks like a Syrphid fly (hover fly) (Family Syrphidae) to me but I don't know which species and don't have time to search the web just now ...

Can anyone ID this fly for me?  I have looked at European wasp pictures on the internet, and I have satisfied myself it is not a EW.  Taken at JWNR just before the rain started.

Many thanks
