Hi Colette - you picture hasn't uploaded - you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post, and follow the instructions to upload a photo from a pc.  Sadly it doesn't work for phones - yet.

If you can't get it to work let us know 

Beetle ID please

Xenia sound as if they'd be good in a pot http://www.readsnursery.co.uk/gooseberry-xenia/

The damage to the leaves looks like they've received attention from a leaf-cutter bee - fascinating things and they'll do no lasting damage to the tree.  

I wonder where it's building it's nest?  Have you got one of these in your garden? http://www.montybees.org.uk/content/how-make-homes-solitary-bees 

The yellowing of the leaves is something different - is your tree in a pot or in the open ground?  What's the feeding/watering regime?
