Like many species, where they are more common they become far less fussy about where they settle and what disturbs them. LEOs are constantly under pressure in a lot of areas in England - even places with a relatively strong population can decline dramatically. But I remember a park in Trebon (Czech Rep) where the LEOs were flying about in the early evening and there were several nests including one directly above a busy path and cycleway. Terrific stuff!
