Was walking very slowly and magpie swooped me multiple times - this bird swoops every year and last year chased me to my front door 2 streets away from its nest and cut my head open. Unbelievably aggressive creature. Pls keep children away
Repeated (7-8 times) swooping and hitting helmet. Followed me down new exit ramp on left hand side of Cotter Road (as you are heading into the city away from Stromlo). Magpie was very aggressive and did not respond to any of my actions or sounds and did not retreat until I joined the path going under the bridge towards Curtin oval.
