Can we adjust the camera now the tits are nesting?
This is the first year we have installed a camera in our blue tit next box. It's great. We have watched them arrive, start nesting and now there are 3 eggs (maybe).
The problem is the angle of the camera. It is missing the back half of the nest.
It looked right before they arrived, but now alas no, as they have build the next right at the back of the box.
All it would take is a pencil through the hole to adjust the view of the camera by poking it downwards...
Is this a terrible idea? Would they abandon the nest? Or should we just leave it and be grateful for the view we have?
Any advice would be welcome.
Thanks so much in advance

Any form of disturbance, no matter how small, can result in the parent bird being unsettled and abandoning the nest. You may get away with it but is it worth it, if they desert the nestbox?
As you said, enjoy what you have.
