Hi Sandiep, sometimes they will start to build in a box and then decide to go elsewhere. It is house hunting, they inspect nest boxes, and will pick around the hole, start to take in nesting materials, and move elsewhere. Hopefully you will still see them around and that someone takes up residence in the box with the camera. I would not interfere with the box and take out the material, leave well alone.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
