    Pigeons?  Occasionally I get young plants dug out of small pots. I've always assumed it's pigeons or some other bird (blackbirds digging around?). I've never caught them in the act though

    They’re a magnet for vine weevil,  if you tip the soil out of the pots you could see if there are some in there.  They eat the root s away and plants fall over.
