This morning we saw a group of these flies with amazingly long antennas flying around the branches of a cherry tree in our garden. The mode of flight was rather like a midge - up and down. The size of the body was about 10mm. Although the submitted photo is blurry it clearly shows the distinctive antenna. Other photos are available showing different aspects. The underside was very hairy and the wings also appeared feathered from below.
