    New Zealand flatworms?
    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3

    That was also my first thought but the photos are rather blurred.

    Sorry about the photo, but they are definitely not flatworms, we have some of those too.
    These are round, about 2cm x3mm and only come out on wet nights. 
  • Have you got a Wildlife Trust/Natural History group or similar local to you ?  If so you could pop a couple of your mystery creatures into a jar and see if they could ID them for you.
    Best of luck :)
