Description:

By the noise they were making I would say there were hundreds of these about in a small area of unmown grassland.

The song (stridulation) is likened to a continuous electrical discharge. Very distinctive once heard, and now you'll probably hear them everywhere (as I did in Oxon in the mid-1990s).
