Bird scarer noise nuisance

Loud bird scarers have been going off since 8.30am & it’s now 15.45pm. They’re going off approx every 5 minutes but sometimes more frequently. We have all the doors & windows closed & the tv on, but there’s nothing we can do to drown this out. NFU issue guidelines about the frequency: 4 rounds per hour is considered acceptable; we’re being exposed to an average of between 12 & 20 rounds an hour. Guidelines state to place as far as possible away from homes etc, so as not to cause a nuisance resulting in complaints. It seems like it’s on top of us. And to use a baffle or screening with eg haybales to direct the sound. HELP!!!
