Hi everyone, i recently planted my cabbage plants out and something is eating them. the leafs are being stripped. put plenty of slug bait down but no sign of any dead slugs or snails. no fly on the leafs. Any ideas.

Could also be sparrows, they will strip an entire veg patch of lettuce in a day, so they may strip young cabbage too.
