What's eating my radishes?

A pest is eating the radishes and mixed salad in my veg patch. It's also eating the radish itself beneath the soil level... what could it be? I assumed a flea beetle. Does anybody have any idea? The culprit(s) must be minute as I never see anything on them

    Flea beetles.  Annoying but we usually find the Radishes are fine to eat, it’s usually just leaf damage.

    Thanks for confirming my suspicions, reassuring to know that the crop remains alright despite leaf damage. I've thought about putting micro mesh over them but there doesn't seem much point if it's only leaf damage and it's ugly and ruins the look of my vegetable patch anyway! :/ haha
