Tachina grossa (Linnaeus, 1758) 
Tachina grossa is a very large Tachinid with a widepread UK distribution. However that distribution does not appear to cover Nottinghamshire and quite a few other Midland/south-east counties also seem to have not recorded this species. There are no records for Nottinghamshire listed on the NBN Atas and the only county record we are aware of, was found and photographed by Peter Smith at Netherfield Lagoons in 2016. Grateful thanks go to Peter, for providing the photograph below.
