Anyone for Cricket

Went to The NE corner of the Serpentine reserve near Hampton today specifically looking for orthopterans and hoping to find one of the coneheads. Just two males were 'singing' very quietly in some long rank grass next to the ponds.

Roesel's on the other hand were everywhere and very noisy.
