Musca autumnalis (De Geer, 1776)
This very common fly can be found in a range of habitats and despite the implication of the name, flies for much of the Spring and through the year, rather than being restriced to Autumn. The males often congregate on certain trees, or other prominent objects and can often be remarkably approachable.
