Gorse Shieldbug Babys & Eggs

Gorse Shieldbug Babys & Eggs
Update: Thanks to Mountainashe for correctly ID'ing these for me. Have a look at thier photo stream for some great Bug Art of different stages of bug life!

About the size of the tiny Orb weaver babies that form the balls, they seem to spread when disturbed but come back to congrigate at the egg pod.

They are black and red, six legs and two antanea, with a insignia on the red part of the shell.
Unfortunetly my equipment wouldn't allow for much clearer a shot at such tiny sizes.

Found in the Heath/grass area of Filsham Reed bed/Combe Haven Valley, East Sussex UK.
