Thanks Amadeus - in the picture are two different nests, next to each other. But they were part of a much larger colony, I couldn't even guestimate the number of existing nests... I focused on photographing three nests (two are in joined photos), and chose those that were among the nearest and had good light conditions.

Wonderful spotting Zlatan! Is it two separate nests with different aged young or is it one big nest? I love the little heads peering out. Thank you for sharing :)
