some sort of nest

This little nest is hanging on a wooden board above my water butt. I couldn`t see any living creature around it, and I didn`t want to destroy it, but I think it`s a spider nest. Any idea?
Interesting to note the little round blocks all around the nest. Are they eggs?

Eggs probably of Vapourer

Eggs probably of Vapourer Moth, laid on the cocoon from which the female moth emerged. She is flightless, the wings remaining crumpled/ screwed-up like tissue paper.
