Holes in leaves - raspberry

Morning all,

I've got these tiny, neat holes on a few leaves of a Polka and just wondered which critter might be responsible?

    Pretty busy on here at the moment so new discussions rapidly descend down the list :o 

    Shameless bump :D

    Maybe raspberry sawfly?  Look under the leaves and see if you can see little green caterpillars (and squash 'em!).  If there are only a few holes and no pests visible, I'd just monitor it and make sure you don't get a severe attack when your back is turned...

    Sawfly lavae, they eat my fruit plants every year, but they still fruit. They seem to go for the drier beds.
