Description

This insect jumped out of my gardening bucket. I thought it was a type of grasshopper but it is fat and stumpy rather than long and slender. Then thought might be a katydid but still not sure. Do you know what it it is

Dieing hedgehog in middle of Salvation track (not sure whether it made its way there because of the the track name ;-). Still breathing, but eyes tightly closed, unresponsive to my presence. Apart from looking to be at deaths door it looked to be in good condition, so I presume poisoned by ongoing pest control.
