Aggressive Magpie that continues to attack cyclists - even before and after breeding season. He will wait on round about for all cyclists to attack. Needs to be removed. Bled from ear and cheek.
Alarm calls. Bird flew down and struck my helmet. Tried cycling slow (didn't help), cycling really fast (helped, probably because it couldn't catch up with me).
Very aggressive attack on my 8 year old son while playing on a trampoline. Landed on his head and dug the claws in. Even chased him under the tramp when my son tried to hide from it
Very aggressive bird swooped repeatedly and clipped helmet a few times. Pedalled as fast as possible towards Mawson - the magpie followed for a long way. Must have set a new speed record for that stretch!
I have been swooped here on my bike two years previously and always avoided the spot during magpie season. But earlier on the same day I had seen people walking past the spot and they weren't swooped, so I thought I had the all clear. Wasn't to be... I was swooped and the bird made contact with my helmet.
