    • hello peter
      thanks for the question….obviously answered by andy afterwards….i thought about roesels to start with but couldnt convince myself, so by the time i had wandered around a few pictures on the internet i had convinced myself otherwise….!
      never mind….

  1. Yes this is a roesel’s bush-cricket. It’s very common in and around Hastings now after colonising the area a few years ago. It’s easy to recognise due to the yellow spots at the base of the abdomen.
