The holes that carnivorous snails bore are indeed very round, and made by  rasping.

I was just going to say that Steve. Carnivorous Molluscs who bore holes in grazing molluscs are quite common in a marine environment. I've never seen it on land though.

A stipa gigantea has had three years and still not flowered. Time to dig it out I think, and replace with something different.

I picked the last of the blackcurrants yesterday and made blackcurrant curd last night. Not an evening for standing over a bowl over a pan of boiling water. Hugh ferney watsit  says simmer for at least 10 minutes to thicken. An hour and a half later.... I'm still stirring, it's slowly getting to 82c and the foxes are arguing on the lawn over meaty chunks. Sounded like a load of kids arguing in the playground.  His 5 small jars turned into three and a half medium  jars, but it didn't curdle and most important, it tastes great.

Loosestrife beetles and larvae predate on loosestrife. Have you got a photo.?

Best to get positive identification before you start spraying. Pyrethrum will kill most insects including the good ones.
