Magpie attack on Cyclist - 16-20 Kennedy Street, Kingston ACT 2604
The mapie attacked me from behind as I was riding my bicycle. It kept on thumping me on my back at least 6 times. I could feel its claws through my top. The flapping of its wings and its frantic screams was all very eerie. I thought it would never end but I kept riding hoping it would stop. It then tried to peck my ear at which point I instinctively took my hand off the handle bar to shoo it off as a reflex action. The next thing I knew I went hurtling down on the path. I broke my right elbow, the radial neck. I've been off work for 4 weeks and just come out of the cast. The bone is still fractured and will take 8 weeks according to the orthopaedic doctor to heal. After that I have to have physio to rehabilitate the arm - I have very limited rotational foreman movement, can't drive for another 4 weeks and am still in pain. And I can only type with my other hand. So I'm very slow at work as I work at a computer all day. My bike came off badly too. The derailler was damaged and had to be repaired and the chain replaced. So it has been costly on all counts.

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 202 Ormond Road, Narre Warren South VIC 3805
I was riding a bike back from the shops with my son. The magpie attacked me on 3 or 4 attempts and got me in the ear from under my helmet. Blood pouring from my head. Needed to be taken to the doctors and because of where it got me I couldn't get stitches but instead had to have my ear supe rglued so it would mend
