Towards morning the second egg of the nightjars also hatched. Thus all took place on June 13 and 14.

The eggshells have been removed from the nest and at the end of the video we see the interaction between the newly hatched chick and the female bird.

The nest in Hiiumaa was found by Renno Nellis in the last week of May when there was one egg. At the time of camera installation there were two eggs in the nest, white and flecked in grey and brown; this is the usual size of a nightjar clutch.
