Description:

The behaviour first caught my attention - several of them were around, and all were doing a side-to-side wiggle as they worked their way along the reed leaves.

Thanks for the identification -

Have you observed the "wiggling" behaviour? I wondered if it was to do with mating, or perhaps defensive (showing off the yellow flashes).
