Description:

Not sure what this one is - it's brown, but I can't see a 'sharply angled keel' on the pronotum. (I am very much a grasshopper beginner, as you can see.)

The white wing edges fit with the Latin name too (but maybe lots of them have that).

Not at all in a marshy area, but the link above says they are common in non marshy places too, and that they have been spreading northwards from southern England.
