6 Aug 18 - Speckled Bush Cricket

Whilst doing some gardening, I found an adult female Speckled Bush Cricket. This is the third commonest Cricket & Grasshopper in my garden, behind Dark Bush Cricket (commonest) & Oak Bush Cricket. I also have had the occasional sighting of Great Green Bush Cricket, Grey Bush Cricket & Field Grasshopper in the garden over the last two decades.

They are a common species in Dorset, especially in the East of the county.
