Grasshopper ID

The bird in this shot is a first winter male Red-backed Shrike.  But which species is its prey?  The image was taken yesterday (26-9-16) at Newhaven, East Sussex.

    Re: Grasshopper ID

    I left this yesterday since there wasn't enough for certainty Bill.  However, since you've had no other response, I suggest the prominence of the abdominal banding indicates it's probably the Common Green Grasshopper, Omocestus viridulus.
