Tui's are already up singing in the trees and daffodils on the hillside. Lovely bright day today to after the hail and thunder of the last couple of days

I think they're crickets. I made the same guess when I first arrived. Cicadas come out much later.

Nice to hear the crickets though.

Default Re: Did I hear

I just went outside and had a good listen adnI can't hear any. we did have a big cricket in our garage the week before last. Thought it was a big spider and went to erm... 'put a jar over it to take it outside' when it jumped about 2 feet away, and then 2 feet again. Got the shock of my life. I love this website in case you haven't discovered it yet http://www.landcareresearch.co.nz/re...at-is-this-bug So good for helping my identify all the bugs and beasties round here.

thanks for the link, shall bookmark that one.

not being a country lass no idea what most things sound like, except the Tui's and that only because I can see them, so I shall take it that it was crickets.

That web page helped me identify the 2 different types of cockroaches we have had in the house, the cricket and the type of wasps that built nest in the plant on the patio. I'm not much of a country girl so this past year has been quite the learning curve
