Vine Weevil

I love the look of vine weevils, but they are considered a pest. They particularly like plants grown in pots and although they mostly favour ornamental plants they are rather partial to strawberries :-(
The grubs eat the roots over autumn and winter and the adults eat leaves during the spring/summer.

Please leave a comment. I'm very pleased to receive corrections or confirmations of my identification of the creatures we've spotted on the allotment.
