On the good side I have peacock and small tortoiseshell caterpillars on my nettles in numbers I haven't seen for years. Hundreds. If the birds don't eat a few they'll run out of nettles.

Maybe we shouldn't worry too much Edd. 

As long as the meadow browns and the gatekeepers can tell the difference

Gate keepers and meadow browns can look quite similar and vary in their orange/brown but gatekeepers have twin white eyes and meadow brown just the one. If you can get close enough to see.

What's wrong with our Oak tree?

Posted: 20/07/2014 at 13:20

Yes, nothing wrong with it. Extra wildlife

The oak supports an enormous number of other species including several other gall makers. Google 'oak galls' and have a look, they're fascinating

 

Alkanet seedling identification.

Yes agree get out the grassy ones and the serrated ones and also those rounded looking ones as just to the left of centre at the top (probably one of the willowherbs). Also there are a couple in there with a first true leaf that is very shiny, looks like a cotoneaster but might not be. Then see what's left.

Leave the one with the longer leaves left front though, not sure about that one

It's possible they might not germinate til spring so you'll need to keep the interlopers down
