Hi Karen,
There are a pair of Masked Lapwings in our local park with a single chick.
They have managed to rear at least one chick each year for the past 4 years,
and one year reared 2.

Each year they are very aggressive towards dogs and joggers while the chick
is helpless, with both birds making diving raid, however people walking past
are just 'shouted' at. Now that the chick can run at a reasonable pace, the
level of aggression has dropped, and only one bird is involved in attacks.

Regards, Mike Simpson, Penrith, NSW, Australia
