I've noticed this crawling insect on window sills and wondered what they are,about 2-3 long,run fast and are of a mustard colour.

Ive tried my best to get a photo but they are so small to see clearly.

Hi,looks and sounds like dusts mites. Lots of people actually have them but never notice them. They are often on the outside of the house in between or behind them, and then come in through open windows. Cheers

No not dust mites either,they are much smaller and dont running around cupboards and window sills.

Dust mites are tiny spider-like creatures, too small for the eye to see, but an infuriating reality in most households. These creatures live on the dead skin that we are constantly shedding, and because we spend around 8 hours a day in bed, we shed a lot of skin cells onto our bedding.

You are right. They aren't dust mites:wrong shape and legs in the wrong place.
They could be a type of psocid.

Have a look through these pics . If you have birds nesting anywhere in the vicinity, it is a high possibility.

Agree with Hawkspur - looks like a psocid. Belongs to the insect order Psocoptera. Commonly known as book lice....an insect so 6 legs rather than 8 like mites and spiders. Usually pale in colour and very small. They feed on fine layers of fungi etc found on paper, cardboard, books etc. in humid places.
