    I like seeing plovers around. They only swoop when they're nesting. It's probably too late this year to do anything, but next year as soon as you see them setting up move their nest further away from where you come and go. Friends did this and the birds continued nesting at the new site - they still swooped but not as often as they were further away from the human action.

    Ignore that fool who suggested killing them.

    Masked Lapwings (or Plovers) are protected under the Wildlife Act 1975 so doing anything to harm them could land you in serious trouble. Only a small percentage of Masked Lapwings will attack. They are simply protecting their nesting area from potential threats. They generally only nest in areas of long grass so if you keep your lawn cut short this may encourage them to pack up and move elsewhere.

    Pellet gun, badminton racket, poison, or rice (if they eat rice, they will swell up and eventually die).

    Source(s): That's uncooked rice, btw.
