Magpie attack on Person - 45 Elliott Street, Cheltenham VIC 3192
I was walking my wheelbarrow down the street when this bloody great big magpie swooped down outta nowhere and nearly took me head off. I was startled, didn't know what happened. It came for me again. I swear it had one red eye. Big ******.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - Alexander Drive, Yokine WA 6060
Son was riding scooter 10m ahead of me when he was aggressively swooped by a magpie and had to dump scooter and run back to me. Seemed to go for him only...maybe because he had a helmet on?
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 16-20 Kennedy Street, Kingston ACT 2604
The mapie attacked me from behind as I was riding my bicycle. It kept on thumping me on my back at least 6 times. I could feel its claws through my top. The flapping of its wings and its frantic screams was all very eerie. I thought it would never end but I kept riding hoping it would stop. It then tried to peck my ear at which point I instinctively took my hand off the handle bar to shoo it off as a reflex action. The next thing I knew I went hurtling down on the path. I broke my right elbow, the radial neck. I've been off work for 4 weeks and just come out of the cast. The bone is still fractured and will take 8 weeks according to the orthopaedic doctor to heal. After that I have to have physio to rehabilitate the arm - I have very limited rotational foreman movement, can't drive for another 4 weeks and am still in pain. And I can only type with my other hand. So I'm very slow at work as I work at a computer all day. My bike came off badly too. The derailler was damaged and had to be repaired and the chain replaced. So it has been costly on all counts.
Injured:Yes
