The magpie swooped me as i entered a trail on my bike at the top of Banks St. And i got a stick and walked my bike for a little bit, i thought i had cleared the area but when i started to ride again the magpie swooped me again! It swooped very closely to my ear, but i slowly walked away until i was fully out of sight of the magpie. It might have been a butcher bird that swooped me but I'm pretty sure it was just a magpie with a slightly brown feathers. It s unusual that i got swooped in the bushland because I go riding at this location very often and there are never birds that swoop within the reserve.
On my own heading south on the V1 Bikeway, just after crossing the on ramp for buses. Same bird as last year, but more aggressive. Brushing helmet with plenty of noise. Got off the bike and walked and he had another go. Obviously doesn't know the protocol. Haha!
