Noticed this debris under one of my hives. Is it chalk brood or perhaps drone larvae…or something else?

Difficult from photo….as soon as I enlarge it’s to blurry. But think on some I can see eyes?
Possibly just a drone clear out due to bad weather and end of season although that does look a little extreme. I’d double check for stores to be on the safe side.
If it’s chalk then that volume should clearly be evident in the combs.
 
I’ll try and get a better picture tomorrow. If it is chalkbrood is there anything I can do about it or will it likely sort itself out?
