While riding his scooter on the cycle path near Wardong place. my son was swooped and chased a number of Times. He had a helmet on so I thought he would be protected, but the magpie was still able to knip at his ears causing a small cut.
Multiple times I have been stalked and swooped by magpies here. The first time there was no warning call, it swooped multiple times before fleeing.
A few days later it happened again but further up the road. This time there was audible calls and loud noise as the bird targeted me.
They seem quite aggressive, so be warned.
