large insect that was on a tree by the side of a small river. Never seen anything quite like it before! Stayed there for a short time then flew off. Big legs!
Not sure how to thank people for their time so I'll do it here - Thank you nightfly and Nature girl :)

Hi sustainableswansea, For

Hi sustainableswansea,

For future reference only- you can use the comment box as I am doing here to discuss observations. The insect seems to be partially in the dark but it does look like a caddisfly and a riverbank is a good place to find caddis as the larvae are aquatic. Cheers.
