Nasty attack as I did my usual walking route.
Magpie attacked my right side of head causing a lot of bleeding. I wasn't sure what had happened initially because it was like a big thud on my head. I carried on walking and then got hit on the left side causing even more bleeding. I looked up and saw the bird flying up onto a power line. I was covered in blood and the bird is very aggressive.Beware very aggressive!
It was 5.15am and I was walking when the bird swooped without warning in Windemere St. He followed me about 100 metres around the corner into Ambleside Cres having a few more goes. I was wearing a bright orange jacket but have been past before without incident. I have been attacked there over previous years. He is pretty persistent.
Repeated attacks over a 10 day period commuting along Military Rd in Cremorne.
Sadly, waiting for the immanent attack riding home nothing happened. I then noticed it had been hit by a vehicle and now flattened. I hope the chicks were old enough to fly the nest? Traffics still as bad though!
