A large Picture-winged / Ulidiid fly fanning its banded wings on rush stems by the River Avon. Am pretty sure it is Melieria crassipennis based on this excellent resource: https://www.flickr.com/photos/63075200@N07/sets/72157691468103142/ also see https://www.naturespot.org.uk/species/melieria-crassipennis but ignore location ifo as NBN shows it's not just coastal.
