Grasshoppers ... several species!

The first is probably a nymph of Chorthippus brunneus, but possibly Gomphocerippus rufus. The green one could be a nymph of Omocestus sp. or even Stenobothrus lineatus ... too early for me to tell. But the third insect I suspect is very small (little idea of scale ... 8mm long?) and so could be a common ground-hopper, Tetrix undulata. (Note: I'm not very confident about any of these identifications!)

All are found in South Devon VC.

Thank you

Thank you for the comments. I will keep an eye on how the grasshoppers develop.
