A couple of years ago I heard an ungodly noise coming from the conservatory (from upstairs at the opposite end of a 4 bedroom house), turned out to be a massive inch-long insect which started swooping at me! Luckily we have an insect hoover that we use to rescue trapped bumble bees and I managed to catch it with that. I managed to identify it as Tabanus sudeticus, the dark giant horsefly.

These things occur throughout the UK, and yes they bite. Horses will bolt to get away from them.

Got bitten by horsefly last week on lower leg. Jesus it hurt when it bit as the tear skin rather than bite. Calf muscle was solid, red hot and hurt (still does). I ended up on a strong dose of antibiotics for 7 days.
