The jelly contains pond snail eggs,not that you can see anything yet.I found a few strands in my barrel pond and scraped them off the sides,it would be overrun if I left them.
They must have come in on one of your pond plants San.
I don't know what the bugs are but they may be laying also at this time of year.
