I like crickets because they tend to be larger than other insects in the country. The Speckled Bush Cricket is common in South England and South Wales and scarce everywhere else. This photo was taken in Norfolk on a rose bush in my back garden at about 10pm. I found the same species on the same bush about a week before and assume it is the same specimen!
