ID help needed

I have just registered to this forum. I started to be interested in flies when I started to photograph them some time ago. Very quickly I bought some identification guides and I am in the process of learning how to identify the different groups, what their habitat and biology is. It is all fascinating! I live in South Wales (West Glamorgan) where there are many interesting sites to visit and new species to discover. I have other interests in entomology : dragonflies, butterflies, bees and wasps.
I photographed this fly a couple of weeks ago on Gower (Whiteford Marshes). When I found it I thought first it was Oxycera Trilineata (newly emerged specimen perhaps) but I do now have some doubts about this. Would anybody be able to help me with the identification?
Thank you very much,

I'll have a stab. Try Chloropidae.

Looks like a Chlorops species
