leaf damage to container plants

I've leaf damage to three plants and I'm trying to indentify the culprit.  There are three container plants - a sweet box, a daphne (Jacqueline Postille) and a cornus, as well as established eleagnus, which is in the ground  The leaves have been eaten, with the damage starting either from outer edge of the leaf, or from circular holes in the middle of the leaf.  So far I can't find sign of vine weevil grubs or adults.  Any advice welcome!

    A lot of creatures are night feeders and I always suspect slugs or snails when foliage is being eaten-could I suggest a visit with a torch- and tonight would be good because it is damp- and you might catch something in the act.
