Default Can you identify these eggs?

I assume these are some sort of eggs. They just appeared the other day. I would assume they belong to one of my nerite snails, but some of them seem to be in spots that the snails could never fit in, but I could be wrong.

If you think they are fish eggs, I can post a list of the types of fish I have.

Thanks! That's what I thought, but just wanted to be sure.

I would have thought that one of my Peacock Gudgeons would have chowed down on them by now since they eat the pond snail eggs.

Nerite eggs are hard, similar to a dry grain of rice.

The look kinda big for nerite eggs to me, but hard to get a good idea of the actual size from the pic.
