This circuit does not flip from on to off or from off to on, the relay pulls when the transistor current builds up when it gets darker. If the process is long the transistor can get too hot and burns.
Look for signs of overheat on T2.
To correct the problem you can replace the transistor to a bigger case TO220.
If you want a perfect solution change the circuit to a flip-flop.

The approximate time period is 1 or 2 minutes and the sensor circuit is powered by power supply of 12v from a transformer using a bridge rectifier....
