Looks extremely thick to be cobwebs unless there is a fresh coat of dew on them..

Looks interesting none the less.. If it is cobwebs, maybe you can contain it and set up a little farm to sell the spiders to the local pet store Wink

Lionel, it looks to me to be the work of the Hawthorn webber moth (Scythropia crataegella).
If you looked closer you may have been able to see dark brown caterpillars within the webs.
