Insects on a window

Observed: 14th April 2013 By: drnickmorris

This morning I found the insects shown on the window. The insects (and I am pretty sure it is an insect as they have 6 legs and two large antennae) have a body that is about 2 mm long, and appear to be clustered around some eggs.
Update: (Monday 15 April, 2013) This evening the insects abandoned the egg like structures and there are now a row of black cases (unhatched?) on the window.

    Likely ID
    Alydidae (a group of true bugs)
    Confidence: It's likely to be this, but I can't be certain.
Species interactions

No interactions present.
