Hello everybody! I'm not a dipterist really (a lepidopterist, to be precise), but take diptera photos from time to time, and will most probably need some help with identifications smile

Is there a possibility to ID this Tachinid (?) at least to genus level?

Photo taken 21 April 2014 at Cannon Hill Common, London (VC17, TQ2368)

Thanks!
