First time Iâ€™ve seen magpies at this park (Beaumont Park) and my daughter was swooped 3 times over a 50m distance walking past it. No injuries just a big scare. Have been back to play at the park in the afternoon since and have seen no signs of them however they are definitely swooping in the mornings
I was attacked by a magpie from the back when i was in the park. I was attacked multiple times. This was my first experience and i panicked. I got multiple bleeding sites on my face.
My six year old daughter was swooped and received an eyelid injury, luckily missing her eye.
The attack was completely unprovoked and came about an hour after my son was swooped on neighboring Coates Street.
