The magpie on this roundabout attacks everyone, shoppers with and without children and people on bikes like myself, he swoops 4 to 5 times an keeps himself occupied all day. This day my wife noticed a woman cowering on the ground being attacked by this bird luckily another motorist stopped and rescued here! Again after putting up with this for then a month I have changed my route!
Bird swooped 3 times, making contact with face once resulting in cut to cheek. Swooped up to 40m beyond nesting tree. Have witness this bird swoop a cyclist continuously for 80m.
Thought I'd avoid my swooping friend by cutting up Belbin to avoid Bourke St where he swooped me yesterday. No joy. Although not as many swoops as yesterday, Belbin is still part of his territory.
