Pair of bristly flies

There are loads of these in our Staffordshire garden currently. Could someone kindly give some guidance on likely identification. Thanks.

Nice portrait of the happy couple! These are Anthomyiidae, and judging from the long tuft of hairs at the base of the hind femur, I'd say they were Delia radicum
