I was walking going to the bus stop and suddenly the magpie attacked me. I immediately covered my head with my back but the magpie keeps attacking from above. I was not able to run because I have knee surgery.
I was really scared.
Already recorded by another person but this same magpie actually bounced off my helmet last week. Continues to swoop in the afternoons - not seen in this area on the commute to work in the morning. Beware.
This magpie has a rap sheet a mile long with many grevious bodily harm incidents - after multiple contacts leading to bleeding scratches on the back and ear - this (murderous) magpie is not afraid of anything. Should have known better than to ride this path, although it was very late in the season.
Swooped twice - once each time I rode along this road. Same magpie, followed me for about 500m until I got off my bike and walked - and another magpie got fired up and attacked the first magpie. Altogether a scary but somewhat interesting experience.
Has grown more aggressive each time I go has started following me now and making contact. Dangerous when heading back to the car, panicking and attempting the get on the road while it's swooping.
I ride my bike through here every day and have been attacked almost every time, if not every second time I pass through here. Very frustrating because it is an excellent hill climb route for my evening exercise.
