Creaking sounds in my loft during the day

Hi. Some days, but mostly not all days, lately I've heard slight creaking in my loft/attic, during the day. The slight creaking sound comes from two separate places.The loft/attic floor is thickly insulated, so I cannot hear any scampering or scratching. I know creaking sounds in a loft/attic are normal at night or on windy days, but these sounds happen when it is not windy.
Just checking I do not have to worry about anything. Thanks

Houses expand and contract slightly as the sun warms the building materials. This can be one of the causes of creaking. Those sort of noises are not necessarily anything to be concerned about.

Thank you. Very much appreciated. It's very cold here, but the sun is out.

A perfect combination for noise!
