Magpie attack on Cyclist - 3 Altandi St, Sunnybank QLD 4109


This bird has been nesting here for many years, so he's an expert at the swoop and loop pass. Swooped me as I was approaching the turn from Altandi St to Dunedin St, again as I was turning right and again about 20m up Dunedin St, making 3 swoops in <40m travelled. He shrieks and brushes your ear as he passes (after approaching silently), but doesn't claw or peck. His stretch of road is noted on Strava as 'Altandi Magpie Dash' and your best chance is to dash, just like it says.
