What nibbled my bay leaves?

Nothing major, but I'm curious. What nibbles mature bay leaves at right -angles? Straight up. Turn. Straight across. It also seems strange that they didn't go for the younger, softer leaves.

    Are you sure they didn't just snap off?

    No they're cut into the sides of the leaves. About the width of a match stick and all less than a centimetre long
    I'll have a look to see if I can find one. To be honest, there weren't many affected. Just looked a bit strange.
