It looks like some kind of head (maybe a badger) pushing the grass, but it's difficult to tell from the light.

I would say it is just the wind. Any predator would be moving around more and it would be pretty clear what is going on when the camera is so close to the nest. There is a little movement, but it is just the hen moving her head.
