    Definitely some form of micro fauna. Most likely worms. But a pic would be better than a 1000 words.

    Is it little upswellings. Nice and round.
    Then it is worms. But as you do not have a lot in there, they are spread out. And each worm earth (sand) he push up is too far away from next. So you see each heap. If there was a lot more worms, then the heaps are pushing over each other and is not that noticeable. Also the water flow is very slow, and do not blow the heap away.

    Almost like a mole heap in your garden.
