Bugs

has anyone got any idea what these little critters are?  I've never seen them before, but there are loads of them in my garden this year.  they're about 6 or 7mm long at a guess.

There was quite a lot about them on 'Saving Species' on Radio 4 this morning at 11:00. It'll be on i-Player soon.
Papyrus and Comic Sans walk into a bar. The bartender says, "Get out -- we don't serve your type."
