Roesel's Bush-cricket

Hot on the heals of my first last weekend in Hampshire it was great to find one of these insects locally. It was a very productive visit to Prior's Fen with Holly Blue and Wall butterflies and a Silver Y moth as well as the following good birds:
Little Egret, 2
Wood Sandpiper, 2
Green Sandpiper, 5
Common Sandpiper, 2
Greenshank, 2 (perhaps 3)
Little Ringed Plover, 1, juv.
Kingfisher, 1
Yellow Wagtail, 10, approx
Swift, 12, over
Sand Martin, 6
Turtle Dove, 1
