Hi all,

A pair of Masked Lapwings have a nest, with four eggs, near the dressing
sheds at the Charlestown Olympic Pool. The Lapwings are causing a bit of
trouble with their usual agressive behaviour and the Council staff would
appreciate any advice as to what to do. The Lapwings are scaring the
children (and some adults!) and have already physically attacked a few
patrons. The pool attendants want to know can they relocate the nest or
take any other action to limit the number or seriousness of any
injuries, without upsetting the birds too much. Any advice gratefully
