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.
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!!!
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).
