Was wary of the magpie from the previous day. Spotted a magpie sitting on the ground and it flew directly for me. Swooped multiple times walking through the playing field and car park.
On the V1 Bikeway, heading south - the last little climb before the long downhill ride. Two or three swoops without touching. Came back the same way but walked with my bike to save the bird and me more hassle.
The road is very open and always busy, magpie very clearly came from the bush area. Magpie swooped 4 times, stopped once I got off my bike and walked. No injuries.
Was cycling past and was swooped by a magpie. Magpie hit cheek with wing and knocked me off my bike. Had helmet on with cable ties. Cable ties did nothing to deter the magpie.
