A friend and I were going through the path and coming from Haldane st, and he was in front of me. We started to ride up the hill but then we saw about 4 magpies fly to a tree and we went back
My four year old son was attacked while on his scooter riding along Richmond Primary, on the Osborne Rd side, close to the back entrance. The magpie kept swooping and picking his helmet for about three minutes, while he tried to scoot away. He was lucky he wore a helmet! Very aggressive bird.
I was out for a walk and saw two cyclists get swooped by a magpie this afternoon, he had a go at the first one for a good distance.
I can see the Magpie sitting in a road sign in the corner from my office window.
When walking to our children school via this pathway between Dawson Park &; the Primary School, my child &; others were swooped due to the colours of their school uniform. Each day he &; his friends were attached on the ear or cycling helmet when scooting or cycling.
Magpie was up in big tree above park bench and swooped my child on their bike, whilst riding on the path uphill. The magpie then came back and flew around my child's face a few times before we moved away onto the oval.
My 3 year old was walking across the grass area near the junction train station in whiteman park towards the steam/diesel train day when a magpie swooped him and scratched his eyeball and under his eye.
He attended the onsite ambulance/paramedics who confirmed his eyeball was scratched to the white part and to seek urgent medical attention. I immediately took my son to mindland hospital emergency where he was assessed for a scratch causing burst blood vessels to his left eye but no damage to sight.
