lapwings attacking

Hi, new to this forum and computers but hoping i may get advice about how long the lapwings will protect their young? the young are about 5 weeks old and the parents dive bomb me everytim i go out the back door. How long will this go on for? LannT

hi LannT

Welcome to the forum. From my experience this will go on till the youngsters are mobile enough to escape on their own.
From memory that should mean only a few more weeks for you!!
You have our sympathies :) Many of us have experienced the same, see the photog thread!!

good luck

Thanks birdie, even though it restricts my movements in the back yard, I love it! It,s said that laughter is good for our health so I should stay healthy as every time I go out there I start to laugh at myself as I check out their position and where I am going to duck and weave to escape. I was told that it,s all threat but my heartbeat doesn,t agree with that!
thanks again
