Broom eggs
Description:

A cluster of eggs on a Broom twig. Assuming they are eggs of a moth or butterfly then it must be a polyphagous species as the only Broom specialst with eggs at this time of year seems to be The Streak, for which the eggs don't look right

they look the same as Brown hairstreak eggs illustrated in one of my Butterfly books but they say Sloe leaves is the plant but it is broom for Green hairstreak which look's very similar,but I an not an expert.
