I can't work this one out. If it is a moth, it is presumably a longhorn, going by the length of the antennae. None of the ones pictured on UK Moths seem to have light and dark rings round the antennae, at least at their base. Could this be a Caddis Fly?
Thanks Mike. I've just had a quick look at "caddis fly" and you could well be right. Certainly habitat, on the edge of a pond, is right as are at least superficially other facts I've just learned, particularly the description as "look similar to moths".
If I can work out how to do it I'll change the title to "caddis fly?" and see if anyone comes up with confirmation and/or a more specific id.
A long-horn caddis of the family Leptoceridae. The markings suggest strongly it is Athripsodes aterrimus, a very common species of large ponds lakes canals and slow rivers. These are often day-flying and form zig zag swarms close to the wateer surface
