Riding on the bike path under th southern expressway at Wingfield and was swooped several times by a female magpie resulting in an accident. Injuries sustained were a broken and ebrassions on arms and legs. Ambulance called.
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!
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).
The bird has been seen numerous times between the trees next to the Showground's entrance and the Bakery on the opposite of the road.
Received four or five hits to the helmet before he gave up.
