This camera was placed at the Nightjar nest in the Forest of Dean as part of a long running research project. Over a period of 8 days or so, around 9 hours of footage was captured, revealing many interesting behaviours and a couple of dramas. The video begins before the two eggs hatch, and ends just before all the birds vacate the nest. When they left, they only moved a few metres after some deer trampled the nest area for a second time. I had to keep this video to 3 minutes due to Flickr's restrictions. There's a longer version (17 mins) at youtu.be/KjxS97znBq8.
