Very persistent but not vicious; attacks are gentle pecks but it won't give up until you are very far away (have been followed across Victoria road). Only attacks whilst moving faster than walking speed.
Got attacked 2x at the same spot! I was only walking through this street near my friends house and i a massive magpie came from behind and bit me just behind my my ear. Same thing happened second time 2 weeks later and 3rd time i managed to escape. Terrifying experience.
Corner of Thompson/old south rd. A tree has been cut down somewhere on old south road. Bird and it's baby now nesting. Very aggressive. Has swooped several times whilst getting out of car. Not been injuried yet!
Swooped without contact - both as I arrived at the Entrance into the pedestrian plaza (still riding), and then as I rode out hours later it followed me about about 100 metres. Swooped a fair bit, but never made contact.
