Almost my entire brassica patch is being affected by something(s) seriously eating the hearts of my calabrese, cauliflowers, and now brussel sprouts - not the leaves (cabbages too were unaffected), just the hearts and the sprouts themselves.  I live in a rural location in Cumbria and my garden has access by all manner of wildlife, but having lived here and tended this garden for almost 25 years, I have never experienced this problem before.  Any ideas?

    Pigeons. Pheasants. Something feathery I think.

    One year something ate all the hearts of my broccoli, but it was easy to see what it was as it left mouse droppings behind!
