Unidentified guests

I have been wondering what had been making small holes on the leaves of a couple of pear cordons; the culprit is a looper-type caterpillar about 4 mm. It's not a Winter Moth Caterpillar. The holes don't really affect the plant that much so I will leave them in peace.

Another small brown looper caterpillar (about 8mm, NOT a mottled umber moth) has been slicing the edges off small pear leaves; again, it's not doing any real harm so I'll leave this one for the birds too.
