Yep, we do have them, but they're small -- about an inch long. They don't swarm like locusts or anything, and there aren't that many of them. Enough so you're not unduly surprised to see one, but sufficiently rare a sight for the average person to say, "Oh look, a grasshopper." Of course this depends upon how much time you spend on grassland.

Planning is an unnatural process - it is much more fun to do something.  The nicest thing about not planning is that failure comes as a complete surprise, rather than being preceded by a period of worry and depression. [Sir John Harvey-Jones]

They don't swarm, but there are loads of 'em. Loads of crickets too. I must spend more time on grassland than Ed, but if you go, say, to the meadow by the side of Durham Botanical gardens on a sunny summer's day, I reckon there will be thousands of them about. As they're so small they take a bit of spotting, but you can certainly hear them. They feature in my latest novel (the Durham Botanical ones) so don't you dare go putting them in yours too.  Angry

I just Googled the above sentence by Del to see if I could find out the name of the tv show. Top of the list was 'Who Knows 5?' at Cafe Doom. I get the feeling I'm going round in circles. grin

We have a meadow in the loop of the River Dee in Chester and there are thousands there too in summer. Not sure where they go in winter, maybe to visit you, D?
