Full House

Today Toby and I went for a trip to Lynford Arboretum, with the hope of seeing the 2 barred crossbills and hopefully seeing Stripe Winged Grasshopper.

We failed with the crossbills but didnt really mind as I did get the tick I wanted- Stripe Winged Grasshopper- This now means that I have successfully seen all orthoptera species in Norfolk this year!

This cracking male was singing North of the car park and I think the other is a female which was near the paddocks.
