I was walking my bike because I had a flat tyre. The magpie came from across the park and tried to swoop me with her claws first. I was followed across the road to the shopping centre but wasn't swooped a second time.
Struck me 4 times with beak. I've been riding for the last month and this is the first time I've come into contact with him. I now ride up through the university, not much of a detour.
not too aggressive, i was running passed and he swooped twice when I was inbetween trees - i think a couple of rosellas had pxxsed him off before i got there - he hasn't swooped for the whole season and i run there often
I've been swooped and hit on the helmet twice this week on my way into the City whilst cycling past the East Perth train station car park area along the shared cycle path. Make sure you're wearing a helmet and glasses to protect you head and eyes.
