My Rabbit Matcha has just given birth and I have actually separated my male rabbit Mochi already but they can still see each other (just a fence which separates them). However, the baby buns’ nest is in a very well lit and noisy part of our kitchen. Can I move the nest to a quieter corner like about 10ft away but still within Matcha’s enclosure?

Yes, but I would restrict the does area to a rather small space with the nest in it for 2 days, so that she gets used to the new location. Show it to her 2-3 times by putting her there and stuffing her nose into the nest (and then just retreat).
At least that's what i do when I have to relocate a nest from the garden to a hutch. Use a nestbox so that the kits can't get drgged out on the teat too easily.
