I added a pond to my garden in July last year, I already have 6 newts, dragonfly larvae, loads of great pond snails and some fish (imported on plants).Looking at the pond today I spotted some eggs attached to a plant.Can anyone give me a clue to what they might be?The jelly sack was about 20-25mm long, each egg is about 1-2mm.I want to know whether to save them or let the other beast have them.I'm in Hampshire in the south of England.The pond is fresh water with no flow (no water feature).
These are the eggs of your great pond snails according to google!

That was my first thoughts, though we've not had any snails eggs here for a while.
Too small for toads and definitely not newts.
