My 6 year old was cycling the path at Fleming Reserve when 3 magpies swooped at the bend near the skatepark and trees. They did not swoop anyone else the remaining time we were there. We think perhaps his Red spiderman helmet with eyes may have provoked them and the flapping red cape of his superman t-shirt
We were on bikes, the magpie swooped my daughter on the side and hit her helmet. The magpie then proceeded to circle around us and then swooped her again; hitting her in the arm. The magpie swooped the third time and hit my nose, this left a big gash and a lot of blood.
