Funny Bugs

I have no idea what these tiny little bugs are moving around on the underside of this leaf. If anyone has any ideas, I'd love to know. If it helps, the leaf is from a twisted hazel plant.

They look like Bedfordshire Scale Insects

(Hemiptera: Coccoidea) Scale insects are plant-sap feeding insects, closely related to the aphids, whiteflies and jumping plant lice or psyllids. They are among the most highly specialised of all plant parasites and feed on all parts of the plant including the roots, stems, leaves, buds and fruit. The adult females do not look like typical insects as they retain the immature external morphology at sexual maturity. Adult males, however, resemble small flies but never feed and die within a day or two of emergence... (with compliments of the Bedforshire Nautural History web page)
