Eggs, unidentified, Rye Meads, 2013-10-24 001
Description:

Inside a hide. Hides are really good places to look for invertebrates. Look in the corners and crannies. Sheds are good too, but I haven't got a shed.
These eggs are close to what looks like a spider's nest.

Interesting - Just Looked Them Up!

What looks like a spider's nest is the female moth's cocoon. She's flightless, and lays her eggs on the remnant of her cocoon. Wow.
