Magpie attack on Walker - Tiki Units, 42 Bayliss St, Toowong QLD 4066
Sitting up on the line right at the intersection. I watched him attach a turkey bird a few days prior, this time he came at me. I've seen him out of the corner of my eye a few times but I thought I was safe.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 3 Altandi St, Sunnybank QLD 4109
This bird has been nesting here for many years, so he's an expert at the swoop and loop pass. Swooped me as I was approaching the turn from Altandi St to Dunedin St, again as I was turning right and again about 20m up Dunedin St, making 3 swoops in <40m travelled. He shrieks and brushes your ear as he passes (after approaching silently), but doesn't claw or peck. His stretch of road is noted on Strava as 'Altandi Magpie Dash' and your best chance is to dash, just like it says.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 10 Altandi St, Sunnybank QLD 4109
By Norris Park, travelling towards Runcorn. Swooped a couple of times from trees on the left side of the street,, once when I was on the bike (brushed my helmet) and once when walking away (plenty of squawking). I stopped suddenly and fell over when dismounting. Slight injury but that was more my fault!
Injured:No
