Thanks again!

RECORD

Name of the species: Platycheirus rosarum

Date of the observation: 13/08/2009

Grid reference: NT450640

Location name: An old quarry? just south of Keith Marischal

Vice-county: East Lothian

Recorder's name: Sandy Rae

Determiner's name: Nigel Jones

Other information: At least two individuals present. Appeared to be holding territories in short rabbit-nibbled vegetation. I saw one fly intercept another in flight and then return to the grass. Very wary and easily flushed, taking flight when approached to within around three feet.
Site appeared to be species rich and had many other interesting insects.
