Currant bush problem

I have 3 currants bushes in my garden, red, white and black. All this year have borne fruit but as they are only planted last year the yeilds were not massive.

The redcurrant bush leaves seem to be being eaten by something. I cant see any evidence of caterpillars and it hasn't been stripped bare overnight just a few leaves each night.

Does anyone know of anything that could be guilty of having a midnight munch on it? The other two bushes haven't been touched, so i did wonder if it was earwigs!!!!

I also need some help on what i can use to stop the leaves being munched away
