After an hrs wait the sun came out and all of a sudden there were darters and skimmers all over the place, getting one to stay still was the tricky part. Eventually one was seen not too far away and a few dodgy snaps were taken, enough to add an overdue british ode to my list.
I took the time to try one of my targets for this year- to start id'ing grasshoppers and crickets
Below are some of the pics taken and hopefully identified correctly. please let me know if I'm wrong, I'm not so sure about the Field Grasshoppers so could do with a point in the right direction!
