Magpie attack on Person - Unnamed Road, SA 5577
Was visiting Wedge island then made a last minute desision to go to north island and as soon as I hit the sand a magpie took my sunflower hat. I was extremely upset as the sunflower hat was my great great grandmothers hat. DON'T GO TO NORTH ISLAND OR THEY WILL SWOOP YOU AT TAKE YOU SUNFLOWER HAT THAT YOUR GREAT GREAT GRANDMOTHER GAVE YOU!!!
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 26 Torrens Ave, Lockleys SA 5032
A juvenile magpie has started swooping along Torrens Rd. Watches for cyclists while perched high on a stobie pole, then swoops 3-4 times when one passes. Harmless so far, but might be one to watch out for next season when he's fully grown!
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 19 Frew St, Fullarton SA 5063
Large wattle bird (NOT magpie!) swooped 6 times then later 3 times when I walked my bike, with helmet on, on the footpath. Flew from 50 metres away on direct line at head height!
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 2 Hartley Rd, Flinders Park SA 5025
I got swooped whilst riding my bike heading west on Hartley Road. The bird made contact with my left ear but did not injure me. I'm pretty sure it was Magpie- Lark (Murray Magpie known to us in SA).
Injured:No
