Hornet Robberfly (Asilus crabroniformis)

A visit to the Newgale Hornet Robberfly site today produced a count of only 13 - hopefully there are more about - the weather was nice but very blowy.
Remember to keep an eye out for this BIG bold fly lying up on cow/horse pats wherever there is some decent habitat and extensive grazing by cattle or horses/ponies.

You know what? Those creatures scare me but I would love to learn about them during my holidays in Pembrokeshire.
