Any ideas what has created these holes?

We have just noticed lots of little holes appear by our garden shed. Not sure how clear they are in the picture, but any ideas what is causing the holes please?

    Hi Clare - I'm guessing it could be birds. Magpies, jackdaws etc poke about looking for grubs - leatherjackets in particular - so it could be that they've found some tasty specimens. 
    Too small to be anything else, but someone else may have a different view and be able to offer another suggestion   :)
    And somewhere on the hill
    Inside the past we hear the bells
    Catching only parts of thoughts
    And fragments of ourselves
    Till we begin
    Again

    Possibly bees or wasps?

    It looks like there is mud around some of the holes that has been pushed out. Could be bugs emerging from their grub phase. It's the right time of year for maybugs.

    My money is on bees. I have the same in an area of my garden. They will move on quite quickly.
