My 5 year old son was kicking ball with brother and magpie swooped his eye in corner, 5 minutes later another attack on young girl walking with her mum and dad on path.
Magpie swooping down on things plus also a dog got attacked.
Was running on the footpath when he came out of nowhere. Hit me hard on the head and drew blood. He chased me to the middle of the oval a good 200m from where I was first swooped. Very aggressive and relentless.
Big b@stard initially hit me from behind while riding up Hummerston towards Kalamunda. Never been that bothered by swooping maggies before but this one made me soil my pants. Must have had a full metre wingspan for heaven's sake, sounded like a bl#ody helicopter was trying to land on my head. ***** wouldn't give up - legs cramped up trying to sprint up the hill away from the bl#ody thing. Had to seek shelter on someone's property for 20 mins and walk backwards up the hill. Bird had a bloodlust, must have chased me for a good 400m. What the h#ll. I'm waking up with cold sweats dreaming about this bl#ody bird now.
There are large trees on Templeton Cres Girrawheen at the parking area of NEW PARK SHOPPING CENTRE , in between McDonalds and NewPark Bar and Bistro . This is the swooping area..
