what are these?

Observation - what are these? - Global. Description: Sorry if this is a silly question and also if it's impossible to tell from the photos. This mass appeared on the top of my compost heap and I am wondering whether they are eggs? Maybe of a reptile? We have toads, slow worms and newts on our land.
