These are ladybird eggs, and given the colour, size, and location, are likely to be Harlequin - it's impossible to tell without rearing them through though. Vapourer eggs are also laid in batches, but are rounder, and an off-white colour with brown banding, and are often laid on the cocoon of the wingless female
Record your ladybird sightings!
This seems verylikely as the eggs were in an area where there were a number of ladybirds (reported to the ladybird survey). Fortunately Harlequins seemed to be, on visible evidence, in the minority. 7-spot were very common with individuals of other types present.
