Weird egg type shapes on my wet grass

Not got the greatest of lawns but boyfriend noticed this morning large patches of egg shaped stuff on the grass/moss/weeds!

It looks like small grapes, are they some kind of buf larvae? Seem quite large for bugs though, any ideas would be helpfuly.

    Toadstools image  I look forward to this time of year and all the different fungi that appear.  If you want to mow the lawn sweep the fungi/toadstools off first to avoid making a sludgy mess of the lawnmower and lawn, but othewise just enjoy watching nature at work image

    They are more likely to be the droppings of an animal.

    There's a photo of deer droppings on this page (4th photo on the page):

    Yes, having seen your pic scrub the fungi idea (think I was misled by the buf/bug typo image).

    Rabbit or deer droppings.  Have you lost any shrub/rose leaves?  If so I'd suspect deer, or an escaped sheep or goat.
