Is this the same as your pet 9213?

Yes it is, although nobody has called me 9213 before - are we all being number coded?

As for the bug itself, haven't seen any of them on the ground before, and none at all for the last few weeks since the weather turned cooler.

Was about 3mm in length

My friends from the Darwin Institute in Denmark sent me this picture of the Homopteran (tree-hopper) Centrotus cornutus on a nettle leaf near Copenhagen.

Another picture of the same beast looks a bit like your little chap

Cheers Chav, am suprised & pleased that somebody has gone to the trouble of identifying the little chap. Am amazed you could find it's name, I looked in loads of places Asia specific.
Also please thank your friend in the Darwin Institute. FYI it seems yr 2nd image was of the little beast taken outside Oslo, but couldn't work out the rest of the blurb that went with the picture.

Seems they are fairly widespread throughout Europe & now I have the name I shall get more info about them in Asia.
Are a type of Cicada - seems in Europe they grow upto about 1cm in length, although my one was only about 3-4mm.
Could favour slightly cooler weather as I have seen several of them in the last week or so, but never any prior to recently.

You have been of great help as I ultimately intend posting the the images posted here & a large stock of others on a "Lamma" dedicated website of Bugs, Butterflies, Plants, Animals, Beaches, Walks, Services, Businesses, etc in about a year time.
Thank you.

Think this may be a Bunch-grass Grasshopper

Time for another bug...........Green Shield Bug (Nezara viridula)

Considered a serious pest in many countries, but I didn't find it too troublesome. Is also known as the Green Vegetable Bug.

They feed by piercing plant tissue with needle-like stylets. The actual feeding puncture is not immediately visible. Adults and nearly all nymphal stages (2nd to 5th nymphal stages) feed on a variety of plant tissue. Succulent parts of the plant and the developing flowers or fruit are preferred. Feeding injury becomes visible sometime after actual feeding. Feeding on flower buds results in premature abscission. Feeding injury on leguminous pods results in seed damage and ultimately distorted development of the pods. Soft and spongy tissue under otherwise intact epidermis results when the stink bug feeds on vegetable tissue, I think.
The most fullproof way of stamping them out is to stamp on them.

Other images are available here but they're not very interesting:
