This one seemed pretty tolerant of bikes on the path, but got pretty angry when I rode across the grass. It was quite vocal, and tried to swoop multiple times. It got one swoop in when I wasn't looking, but didn't actually touch me.
I was walking my bike because I had a flat tyre. The magpie came from across the park and tried to swoop me with her claws first. I was followed across the road to the shopping centre but wasn't swooped a second time.
I've been swooped and hit on the helmet twice this week on my way into the City whilst cycling past the East Perth train station car park area along the shared cycle path. Make sure you're wearing a helmet and glasses to protect you head and eyes.
I noticed this magpie a few days before checking me out whilst cycling!. The magpie swooped at me 4 times whilst cycling late in the afternoon on 24 October.
The magpie appears to be quite vicious, it gave up swooping when I turned the corner onto the next road.
