Magpie attack on Runner - 11 Camden Gardens, North Turramurra NSW 2074
I was running on a fire track that connects St Ives Chase to North Turramurra and out of nowhere was attacked, presumably by a swooping magpie that I never saw. I received multiple lacerations on my face and head, the primary cut just above my right eyebrow.
Injured:Yes

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 136 Acacia Rd, Kirrawee NSW 2232
My wife told me how the magpie and its offspring were both swooping my son in the backyard and walking to the park it sounded as if the adult was teaching the offspring how to swoop using a toddler as target practice. She said the sound of the birds pecking the helmet terrified her. It seems to pick it’s times and places as I haven’t been swooped for ages and it doesn’t ever swoop in the yard usually
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Walker - 25 Jasper St, Greystanes NSW 2145
Magpie would fly towards me then come straight down at me. I ducked behind my pram and it hit the pram at least twice. It wouldn’t give up and followed me for about 50m.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 10 Altandi St, Sunnybank QLD 4109
By Norris Park, travelling towards Runcorn. Swooped a couple of times from trees on the left side of the street,, once when I was on the bike (brushed my helmet) and once when walking away (plenty of squawking). I stopped suddenly and fell over when dismounting. Slight injury but that was more my fault!
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 4 Badgally Rd, Campbelltown NSW 2560
This was a real mother of a bird! Six, maybe seven swoops from in front and behind. All made contact and several with my glasses which were almost knocked off on one occasion. Probably the worst encounter I've ever had. I'd encountered, what I now assume to be, the same bird many weeks ago but on the other side of the road and coming downhill. On this occasion I was heading uphill and it was bit closer to Blaxland Road. Whatever the true situation it seems Badgally Road could be a no go from late August until late November.
Injured:No
