I prefer the Black-faced to the Little pied because the black on the head of the latter doesn't go below the eye & down to the bill. It's a hard photo to read the facial markings from. But my first impression was of a Black-faced cormorant.
Spider webs can be largely divided into "organized", the classic circular, with radiating ribs, joined by spiral arms. Or, "disorganized", like the above. The large number you had in the grass at one times makes me think there was a recent hatching. And that their numbers probably decreased as some moved on, or were eaten.
