Magpie attack on Walker - 3K Union St, Melbourne VIC 3004
I was attacked from the side while waiting at the traffic light. It attacked my right eye and injured my eyeball requiring medical treatment. I can see that there are similar incidents around this area. This should be reported to the council or pest control agency!
Injured:Yes

Magpie attack on Walker - 109-113 Alma Rd, St Kilda East VIC 3183
Looked like a flock of noisy miners. Did not see and lark or proper magpies around. Repetitive aggressive swooping from all directions, 'pwe-pwe-pwe' rucus all over in coordinated swarm attack. Wearing a hat and reflective glasses - no contact or injuries. Radius of about 150 meters just opposite playground - could be dangerous for small children (see other unrelated reports). WT...?????

Magpie attack on Walker - 622 St Kilda Rd, Melbourne VIC 3004
It happened to a stranger, but I was walking behind him and his son. He got a peck on the back of his head. The magpies here are those smaller magpies, but are just as aggressive and harmful as the real deal. Last year in the same spot, I got swooped from the front by one of these birds, and he got me just underneath the eye! I was very lucky not have sustained serious injuries, but had a nasty gash and bruising around the eye area. These birds tend to hover around near the Subway restaurant on the corner, and then pick their targets. Whatever you do, protect your eyes.
Injured:Yes
