Hello old mate! Good (not) to see my nemesis back in action EXTRA EARLY this year! Guess its time for 'Plan B' (the long way around) for the remainder of the year.
Was wary of the magpie from the previous day. Spotted a magpie sitting on the ground and it flew directly for me. Swooped multiple times walking through the playing field and car park.
Walking down the street with my friends, magpie was on a powerline, i didnt care and just kept walking it took off and dived down towards us and kept diving for about another 500m BEWARE ATTACKS YOU FROM ABOUT 20-30 METRES AWAY!
Walking with friends, magpie proceeded to watch me from powerlines, came down on the ground and then started running after, i ran away and then i heard it's wings and its call so i kept running past the police station and it stopped
I walking pass the Treasury Building on my way home from work yesterday at 5pm I was not in the park but on the footpath above where the cars are parked. Something literally hit my eye and the side of my face, it felt like a sandbag it was so hard thought someone had punched me. Only then I realised that it was a magpie....... I was bleeding from my eye lid and nearly could have lost my eye!went to the doctors. Have a swollen eye and is puffy and red.
