Magpie attack on Cyclist - 6-8 Swan Pl, Lyons ACT 2606
Attacked while cycling with my kids. Swooped several times, I was hit on the back of the helmet and my daughter was hit in the side of the head lacerating her ear. She was left with a bleeding gash; it's fortunate she was wearing a bicycle helmet as it provided protection from a more serious injury
Injured:Yes

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 7 Bowen Dr, Barton ACT 2600
Been aggressively swooped the last 5 days in a row by this one. It pretty much terrorises the entire area around here from the lake to the other side of Bowen Drive. Flew at my face yesterday and I fell off my bike trying to avoid getting injured, so beware. This is a nasty one.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - Horse Park Dr, ACT 2914
Very aggressive magpie. Wish I read the alerts before riding this way! Was swooped multiple times by a magpie perched on the power lines. Made contact with my helmet a number of times.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 13 Valder Pl, Farrer ACT 2607
Took different route from attack yesterday and walked bike but still singled out by vicious magpie that kept swooping until I gave up and turned back. I would avoid Farrer reserve by tower for the next few weeks
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 28 Ainsworth St, Mawson ACT 2607
Just when you thought swooping season may be winding down...or hoped...This is a new one. I've cycled past here a few times in maggie season without incident - until today. An initial fly by/inspection before swooping down for the "clack." Will this swooping season never end?
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - Barton Hwy, Mitchell ACT 2911
Swooping bird. No contact, and it broke off when I looked at it. Likes to attack from behind - only cycling northwards, does not swoop if your riding southwards towards the Federal Highway.
Injured:No
