Sage Leafhopper Family: Cicadellidae it does look right but would just go through the British Bugs Site to double check
I am quite certain it is a useful record for our part of the world they are quite a few species some similar .Habitas the NI recording Site I am sure might have a distribution map or welcome your obs etc. I am sure once you start looking for these Homoptera you will soon amass an interesting selection

Thanks very much Wildlife Ranger, yes Sage leafhopper rings a bell from the last time I had this IDed on BGM.
I have a couple of nice pics of the turquoise green leafhopper you get along the fringes of upland lakes, well at least thats where I encounter them. They are lovely, must dig them out.
I will report this record to habitas.
Cheers for the info, much appreciated!

With respect to all for this is indeed E. urticae. Apart from other key points the one that really shouts E. urticae are the nigh on black hind tibiae. I would say it is still at the teneral stage which would account for its paleness. Have another look on B.B..
Season greetings to all and may 2016 bring you all you wish for.
