You can see clearly the bunkers being built. First a hole is excavated and the bunker built inside it and then the soil is back filled over the bunker.

Sorry I drew this upside down. This plan is re drawn from Alain Chazettes on the Atlantikwall Superforum.
An infantry Division of the period would have had around: -
1500 x rifles, 1100 x pistols, 700 x sub machine guns, 500 light & 100 heavy machine guns, 58 x 81mm mortars and may have had some 20mm AA guns and some Field Kannon of 7.5cm to 10cm under their command. The division was made up of three regiments the 148th, 149th and 150th, all were for defence positions and had no organic transport except a few horses, wagons and field kitchens and a few bicycles.
