Anybody seen/heard any meadow grasshoppers this year, they should be around by mid July.  Either they're late or last year's catastrophically wet summer wiped them all out.

Having seen this and not heard any in the garden I went and had a look today. There were a lot of straw coloured ones leaping about. I'm presuming these are young ones as they aren't as big as the grasshoppers I usually have but are in the place that is usually favoured.
