black sticky eggs

guys,i moved the BBQ today(yes England is sunny today )
and under the grill part was a black sticky mass of eggs ?
i have not come across anything like this befor in the garden.
there is no body of water near by,so i ruled out frogs,newts,toads.
the eggs are very small,and black like the Tar consistancy of what they are incased in ?
i'm going to try an do a picture,but don't hold your breath for that.
any idea what they are ?

i put them on a sea shell to be able to move them out of the way,
i have put them in the same area that i found them.
the shell is samll,maybe an inch long so you get an idea of how small the eggs are.
sorry the pictures not very good.
it's just i have never seen anything in such a gooy mass befor,it's thicker than frog spawn,almost the
consistancy of gum ??

Well, if the eggs are that small they could be some type of insect eggs??

i've not come across anything like that befor,i mean it's so icky sticky like coal tar.
well i put them back in the area they were,my daughter said put them in a pot and see
what hatches out,but i don't know if i could do that,they kinda creep me out,
especially if they were to turn out like spiders.

I'm not that curious either. I would have destroyed them already. Rather, I would have had my boyfriend do it LOL.

Looks like an oyster. Did you put them in that shell?
