:hi:
23:19 chicks are under the father.

Last night they were away from IR light, probably also tonight.
I hope they will not move further to the right.
Then the tree stays between them and the camera.

Most probably the female is on next clutch, already for the week by now. It can be not far, but difficult to find the place through camera view. Can be that you see some scanning for longer time - it means somebody is searching the new place with well camouflaged female on eggs. But she can be also out of cam view, even most probably it is so.
As already mentioned, night observation is not easy, because IR light is a spot light for former (and successful) nest. Because of success, chicks move around and do not care of our wishes to see them for longer.
Otherwise, they do not care about IR light, their movements seem to be just random. Some hiding sticks have moved and hide now our night vision in direction of brood currently.
Anyway, Nightjar cam was (still is) very interesting and also spontaneous attempt to give more value for cam set built up for Capercaillie observations. I mean it was not planned that way!
And probably the Nightjar cam added some value to Bird of the Year campaign. Seems to be win-win situation with few expences. If we will not find new nest through cam, the camera will be removed in the end of next week.
