Was walking my little dog when I felt something hit my head! Turned around and saw the magpie flying away, and when I felt my head found a nasty mark pouring the blood. Be careful!
Swooped and close to being hit. I was cycling but it is a fairly steep road so couldn't get away quickly. Maybe the fact there was a bit of traffic about stopped it coming back for another go?
There's a magpie on Merry Creek bike path just north
of Coburg Lake attacking riders. It's had several goes at me, yesterday 13/10 was the worst, however today I foiled it by pointing my helmet AyUps straight backwards. Beware. Video posted to <a href="https://www.facebook.com/magpiealert" target="_blank" >MagpieAlert Facebook</a> page.
