Caddisfly (Limnephilus)

Caddisfly (Limnephilus)
This is rather more than 'just a Caddisfly'.
It has wing markings, but the pic isn't really good enough to make a more detailed ID.
I shall have to look at these more carefully in future as I remove them from the trap. The weather isn't allowing me to run the trap very much this year!
This one is about 22mm long- not including the antennae.
Most probably Limnephilus lunatus

These usually skitter along the surface of the water don't they?

No. They are like moths and fly.
