Description:

I live in the Conwy valley, North Wales and I have just spotted this spiders web! its runs along the hedge for about 5 meters! it is very condensed and it has thousands of eggs which look like grains of rice with black tips!
Could you please advise wether this is a native spider?

It's certainly Yponemeuta of some species, but I can't see the foodplant well enough to agree with the species. They are native species
