    Looks like frog (or toad) spawn to me!

    Scoop it up and put it on the edge of your lake by some marginal plants @Hostafan1.   If it's viable it'll produce frog or toadlets in due course.

  • Hello , I think its frogspawn ,  as toads leave their spawn as like  long beads on a necklace .

    Surely, amphibians only spawn in water?  I think these are more likely to be slug or snail eggs.

    S&S eggs look like tiny pearls 
    In London. Keen but lazy.
  • I've seen frogspawn in small puddles - which is likely whats happened here.

    I've added them to the bucket along with the "normal" frog spawn.
