Author's notes

Relatively large, combined wingspan roughly 7-10cm or maybe even larger. Looked a bit like a dragonfly in flight. Disappointed I didn't get a better pic before it flew off.

This suggestion is an error - I put the name in the wrong report.

Thanks for your photo, Roy. I have downloaded the original photo, cropped it and added it back to aid in identification.

As stated above, Glenn made the moth suggestion in error. It was confirmed in error too. I have reversed the confirmation, and made a suggestion of Lacewing.
