Mystery Clutch of Eggs

I stumbled upon this clutch of eggs on an apple tree leaf at Ampthill Park today. They are each approx 1.5mm across so laid by something quite large, but I'm not sure what yet. I wondered about a hawkmoth, Eyed being the most likely candidate as it does lay on apple, but I'm not convinced yet, so will try to breed them through to find out...
