Magpie attack on Cyclist - 10 Garrell St, Caulfield North VIC 3161
This was the second time I was attacked here this year. On bike the bird - I don't think it was a magpie - relentlessly pecked away at my helmet for about 50m down the road. The other time, 2 birds were attacking me
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Walker - 73 Grubb Ave, Traralgon VIC 3844
I was out walking when suddenly a magpie flew down at me. I looked up and realised he was circling and coming back for a second attempt. I only had my phone with me and no head protection, so tried to get away from trees to avoid being near a nest it was protecting. My plan didn’t work and it managed to swoop me 6 times in all. I crossed the road and looked for a house where a person might be home, but ended up under someone’s front verandah. I was going to call my husband to pick me up, when a car with two ladies who had seen me being swooped stopped and very kindly drove me home.
Injured:Yes

Magpie attack on Cyclist - Argyle Ave, Chelsea VIC 3196
I avoided this spot for over 6 weeks, only to pass by again today and be attacked by the same bird. I see the council is aware of the situation as they've put up warning signs to absolve themselves of liability, but taken no action to remedy the situation and remove this dangerous nuisance. It's really not good enough for an area heavily used by families.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 101 Argyle Ave, Chelsea VIC 3196
Another cycling attack here after avoiding the area. Plenty of people walking so seems to attack cyclists. Two birds this time. Sustained a dislocated knee after coming off my bike hard as a result.
Injured:Yes

Magpie attack on Cyclist - Argyle Ave, Chelsea VIC 3196
I was punched hard in the left cheekbone from behind causing a deep 2cm scratch and drawing blood. It then came back for a second hit on the same side adding an extra puncher above (more blood!). Three days later my cheek is still swollen and bruised... I don’t think the bird was a magpie but it is very aggressive and very dangerous at such a popular location!
Injured:Yes

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 3 St Vincent Pl, Berwick VIC 3806
We were heading down St. Vincent's Place in Beaumont Waters estate when my son (who was riding his bike) got swooped 3 times by the same magpie. The magpie got closer each time with the last time touching his helmet. He was swooped in the same spot last year while on his scooter.
Injured:No
