  • I'd  go for Cabbage White butterfly - but it's so blurry that I have to be a little uncertain.

    There seems to be a few of them doesn't there...

    If any have their bums in the air I'd check out sawfly larvae...image

    I think Vic is right, saw fly larvae. Judging by the numbers and what they eating

    I agree - sawfly larvae - they're having a go at my Rosa Bonica too image

  • Hi, yes, I was looking at earlier and come to the same conclusion.

    not sure whether to bin them or hope the birds get them.   I'm in a good wildlife area so apathy seems to work for pests.  But don't want them overwintering.

    i also found a dagger grey moth caterpillar today.  Fascinating!

  • Ps. Thanks everyone!image
