sorry for question again, found this little worm(?) curling up under my potted perennials, please could anyone let me know if it's a good little one or should go to birdie's table?

Thank you

I think your are right FB.  I find these throughout the Winter, often hiding under ground-hugging foliage where they overwinter.

I find them but they are more brownish. I found one of the adults also in the garden. It looks too much like a leaf.They are probably there all the time, but I dont see them.

 An adult I found amongst the leaves.

is it a leatherjack? I was finding simalar ones last week, mine were dirty olive green colour. They were curled up like the ones in the photo.

No, leatherjackets are that dirty olive green colour, just as yours were and like these.
