A very slim Mirid grass bug in a chalk grassland meadow. Fits description for Megaloceroea recticornis well (see https://www.britishbugs.org.uk/heteroptera/Miridae/megaloceraea_recticornis.html) and doesn't have the pitted pronotum of Stenoderma species. It's relatively rarely recorded (c700 records on NBN) but is so well camouflaged that it's easily missed.
