Insects walking around on a willow tree 5-7mm approx. i noticed one, then loads of them, they seem to be spreading out from the willow to the rest of the garden. They sort of reminded me of ladybird larvae but with shorter bodies and they seem to be a bit fluffy.

Me too

Yup. Those are they. I have these also on a willow tree in St Albans, Hertfordshire. I may post a photo, but yours may be better! Ian.

Hi are they ladybird larvae

Hi are they ladybird larvae then do you know or something other? They were certainly quite abundant :D
