Looks like caterpillars. We get millipedes but they are black.
Moth caterpillars or butterfly do you think?
What would bring so many to our garden?
There must be thousands.
And if it's millipedes do I need to worry with the kids out there playing?
DD is trying to pick them up.
Excuse the questions, I'm Irish so I think everything here wants to kill us.

Millipedes do tend to appear in the ...millions.
Harmless but kind of gross.
OK, that must be them then.
I've just gotten over an infestation of pantry moths.
My stomach isn't what it used to be, can't deal with the crawlie things anymore.

They are black, quite hard and when you touch them the roll up into like a snail shell shape (can't remember the word for it) but harmless. My kids pick them up all the time and put the outside. They range in size, the biggest I have seen is about 5-6cms.
The ones in your picture look furry which is what makes me think they are caterpillars.
I reckon they're millipedes. Black and brown ones live in the garden and migrate in large quantities, especially after heavy rainfall.
Oh I really hope they're not caterpillars.
It's going to get a lot more gross around here if they are.
Stomach is doing flips looking this stuff up.
I found a picture that looks like them, same size anyway although I didn't see the spots on the side.
