this little fly I found in a forest on a plastic bench in a forest, size about 3 mm, often fast running, only short stops. Who can tell me which species this is ?

Im Wald fand ich auf einer Kunststoffbank eine etwa 3 mm große Fliege, die ständig sehr schnell "zu Fuß" auf dem Kunststoff herum lief und nur kurze Stopps machte. Kann mir jemand mitteilen, um welche Art es sich handelt ?
