Thanks

for the identification. I really had no idea!

Happy to help :)

I think there is just one other species of grasshopper in the UK with these distinctive clubbed antennae - the rufous grasshopper - but the keels on the pronotum are more curved in this species. Also, I think it just has a southerly distribution, so probably doesn't occur where this photo was taken (at least not yet...).
