One member of the St Mark's fly family Bibionidae was caught - Bibio johannis.
Four species of hoverfly were found by me in the meadow: Melanostoma mellinum, Platycheirus clypeatus, Eupeodes latifasciatus and Eristalis pertinax. Hopefully other members of the group may have found some more.
Damp meadows can be very good for dung flies, Scathophagidae, but I only found one species, a male Scathophaga inquinata.
With the meadow being rather unproductive I tried the wood as I thought the shelter might provide better conditions. The wood looks splendid at this time of the year with its carpets of bluebells and canopy of cherry blossom. However it did not yield much in the way of diptera. In fact I only took a single fly. This was the common Spring hairy-eyed cranefly, family Pediciidae, Tricyphona immaculata.
So, it was not a very productive start to the season but it was a very pleasant walk in a superb location.
