Other Winged Critters And Flowers

Bystock Pools, Devon
I had a wander manly around the meadow area of the reserve to see what Butterflies were around. There were plenty of Meadow Brown, a few Small Heath and Common Blue. I also came across many other winged critters. A few moths around (Matt I’m open to ID suggestions) some Red-tailed Bumblebees, a Small Blue Damselfly and a few insects that I haven't yet managed to ID. UPDATE. One of the insects is a female Scorpion Fly (1 of 3 possible species) and the other is a species of Hover Fly (Sericomyia silentis). Many thanks to Martin Elcoate for his superior knowledge!

My wife came home with a photo of a large moth that was on her parents drive. To me it's a Pale Tussock but again open to ID suggestions.
