Hi Kate the chestnut trees in the park had lost most of there leaves by the end of September, you could see clear blue skies through the branches ,I have one growing in a pot in the garden and the leaves have just started to turn brown,maybe the moths haven't found it yet it's about 15 years old,Oldchippy.

Just from personal observation, South London horse chestnuts seem to be less affected by the leaf-miners this year than previously. I wonder whether the cool weather in spring delayed them, or leaf-growth, and that by the time everything had caught up leaves were browning and falling anyway.
