    Default Something is eating my Cherry leaves

    Any ideas as to what might be eating my Cherry Tree leaves, whatever it is it is leaving very jaggedy edges? I've had a look around but can't find anything lurking!

    Could be pidgon damage - the wreched things have nicked most of the cherries already and the fruit is still green!

    my cherry trees have been ravaged by small green catapillars, been squishing them for a couple of weeks. they are quite hard to spot but gently flicking the leaf clusters sometimes dislodges them.

    Thanks for the replies.
    I have looked for caterpillers etc but can't find anything other than Cherry blackfly which I keep squidging The edges look just like they have been cut in a ziggy zaggy stlyee! right up to the stalks on some - never had it before, must be a Fen thing!
