Yes, Invalid activity are the Clicks that Google has identified as not valid, or fraudulent or errors by the system and credited your account back the cost of those clicks.

Usually the system is fast enough to catch them before you are billed and removes them from the daily cost, but times you get a credit a day or two later.

If you have a larger account and larger spend, you will see more Invalid activity credits then in smaller accounts just because of the volume of clicks
