I put it up on I-Spot, and got the following response: "A careful look at the wings shows this to be a nymph, most probably of brunneus. Purple or pink forms are not rare in the females (only?) of several species. Colour variation is more pronounced in females of grasshoppers (not bush-crickets), and nymphs are often more brightly coloured than adults." It was identified (tentatively) as a Common Field Grasshopper (Chorthippus brunneus), and while I'm no expert I think that's right.
Thanks Simon and Wildlife Ranger. I've seen pink forms before so was curious to hear what they might be. I suspected it might be a nymph but wasn't sure if this form only occurred in one species.

I think the pink colour means they have recently moulted.
