At least. Prob. other adults around, and prob. didn't see all the nests & young. Also, there may be a previously unreported nest around to the W (or right from the bridge), somewhat visible from W of the bridge. One flew up there around 6 PM and seemed to go to a nest area.

I have thought that a drone survey (after leaving nest) would be useful.
