Activity of the day: Cricket season (also grasshoppers)


They're loud but really hard to spot - and quick to get away, hence the really dodgy photo. But this year is a great year to try and spot grasshoppers and crickets- because they're brilliant little critters, and because lots of councils have reduced their grass mowing, meaning there's more of the long grass that grasshoppers and crickets need to live in.


Also, "I'm looking for grasshoppers" is a fantastic excuse for spending lots of time lying on the grass on a sunny day, just enjoying nature...
