Sarcophagidae: Miltogramminae
Sarcophagidae: Miltogramminae. This is a female of genus Phrosinella.

Sarcophagidae, Miltogramminae
I think Stephen is right with his idea about this being Sarcophagidae. It seems to be a species in the subfamily Miltogramminae. The large majority of Miltogramminae are kleptoparasites of solitary bees and wasps!
Greetings,

Tachinidae
No I think it is a Tachinidae, but they are hard to separate just by picture. The main thing is that they eyes are so far apart, which I have seen in some Tachinidae....But not completely sure about that..

 
Thanks
Martin and Gerard, thanks for your help on this one!
