I’m trying to grow winter vegetables, but something is eating holes in my cabbage leaves.  Good strong, healthy plants except fot all the holes. Tried putting snail food around but no change.

My cabbages leaves were full of holes - like lace. I was convinced it was caterpillars or slugs. However, I've recently caught the culprits in broad daylight...Pigeons pecking at the leaves.
