got swooped 3 times while walking onto the Dawson park. My back head was pecked 2 times, I felt tingle until evening.
My son almost got swooped too, luckily I managed to swish it away (it swooped me after :( )
we stayed in the park for 5 minutes and decided to run off because it came to a point, it could injured my son.
Struck me 4 times with beak. I've been riding for the last month and this is the first time I've come into contact with him. I now ride up through the university, not much of a detour.
Magpie on ground to the right of the bike-path flew-up to a tree as I approached and then had one lazy swoop from behind as I passed.
I don't think his heart was in it.
Very aggressive pair of magpies attacked me as soon as I went outside. This had also occurred the previous evening, when they were clearly defending a young bird learning to fly, which had landed next door. Before that no problems. But others have clearly also been attacked because while I was fending off this morning's attacks, a woman walked past me on Corroboree Park, hunched-up under a black umbrella, with no rain in sight.
