Two jumpers at Holme Dunes

I managed to photograph a cricket and a grasshopper at Holme Dunes today to add to my Meadow Grasshopper at Ringstead Downs yesterday.
While checking for birds from the first hide a Roesel's Bush-cricket jumped in and obligingly stayed motionless on the concrete floor while I took its photo.  Later, in the dunes, a Mottled Grasshopper landed near me and once again remained still for long enough to be photographed.
