Hi, I've found the same stuff in my garden - exactly like your photos. It was all stuck to the grass underneath the bottom of my son's slide. I searched and searched on the internet and found that they are frogs spawn. Apparently when a frog gets caught short (doesn't get to a pond in time) or gets attacked by a cat for example it can lose it's eggs on dry land and because the eggs have come straight from it the clear sack part around each egg hasn't expanded as it needs water to do that. I put the two big clumps of black really sticky eggs in water and they now look exactly like frog spawn - weird huh?! Well thank goodness they're not some yucky fly lava anyway. Not sure if I saved them in time but will be checking them every day.

It looks to be an annual event since 1 year on from your posts I found some sticky black balls too, I assumed they were some horrible insect or slug/snail eggs (although my wife said they may be frog spawn I dismissed her since the balls look nothing like any frogspawn I've ever seen!). I put them in a nappy sack and chucked them in the bin. Curiosity got the better of me so I looked it up and found all your comments. That evening a put them in some water in the garden and 3 days later I have proper looking frog spawn. Good work all round I say.
