Potato plants being eaten

Potato    Dublin, Ireland

I noticed my potato plants are being eaten, there is no sign of any insect or eggs and wondering if this might be slug damage? Its not all the plants for now its just the first 2 which seems like when the first one was eaten then whatever it is went onto the next one. Any ideas? No image available but i will post one tomorrow, Thanks

Hi David,
Thanks for the reply, I found a slug heading to the plants last night with his knife and fork at the ready so think that answered my question.:) I didn't think slugs would eat potato plants so I was a bit surprised. thanks aganin for the help.

Yes, it could be slug damage. Pictures of course are helpful, but try going out at night with a torch to see what you can find
