Although they do eat a few slugs, they're not terribly good for them as they can harbour lungworms - they love crunching vineweevils tho

Possibly lamium orvala? 

What have I done?

By the way, how high up were the damaged leaves?  Vine weevils don't fly ....... 

What have I done?

Any flowering plants which grow in the area will take up the chemicals which will pass into the pollen.  It is thought that this contaminated pollen may be poisoning bees.

 If I were in your position I would remove any flowers from any plants in the area this summer before they can be visited by bees.

Our sometimes keep us awake at night, snuffling around and pushing their dish of food around on the terrace.

OL, I was 27 like everyone else, but I've had a birthday so I'm going backwards  

I've just been out in the garden watching Hefty Hedgehog and his/her friend snuffling around in the Little Wilderness - lovely to see them.

The ones that HH has been caring for are likely to be from a late litter, able to fend for themselves but without having put on enough bodyweight to hibernate successfully through the winter.

I've just been out in the garden watching our regular Hefty Hedgehog and one of his/her friends - noisily huffing and puffing around each other in our Little Wilderness.  Lovely to see them 

Is this a weed?
