This is a hoverfly. These are true flies belonging to the diptera order of insects. The Latin name means two wings. They are so called because, unlike other orders of insects, flies have only two wings. In the far distant past they had four but over many millennia two have degenerated. Apparently there are more than 270 species of hoverfly in the UK, plus more who migrate during the summer.
