Hopping off a plane.

Some migrants make their way around the world under there own power, some hitch a ride!

The Food and Environment Research Agency(FERA) have identified that a grasshopper that arrived in the UK on a flight from India to Stansted is a painted grasshopper. The insect is 6cm-long and sports bright blue and yellow colours.

The insect is a pest on the Indian sub-continent, however as a lone visitor it will not be able to breed and probably wouldn't have survived our climate.
