I was walking from Laverton station to home when I got attacked multiple times (almost everyday coming back to home or going from home, morning and afternoon) on Fitzroy street and Tomkin Court in Altona Meadows. I have seen attacks on one or two people in the same area.
Cycled through Kent street, Epping. Magpie followed me for 3 blocks and swooped multiple times, beak made contact with my helmet. Today, cycled down a different road, Boronia Avenue. again swooped by a magpie. No contact this time but still concerning. Got off my bike and walked. Swooped once or twice after.
Had grown a bit casual as I had been swooped about six times already today. All pretty lame efforts as if they knew the season was over. So was really surprised when this chap managed to give my ear a good nip.
My helmet is nude - but think it will go hairy very soon. Or maybe buy a stuffed eagle and wear it on my shoulder!
