Small Tortoiseshell Caterpillar?

I'm not 100% certain about this one but Small Tortoiseshell seems the most probable from appearance, food plant and the fact that it was on its own, though there were others on nearby plants (Tortoiseshell Caterpillars get all solitary in their later stages). I really must get a caterpillar book, musn't I? The Butterfly books alone just don't quite do the job. Also, I know it's not the most exciting photo in the world but I do like to try and cover all that I find (and I came across an adult the other day too so it's the first part of a series!).
