Have been swooped by Magpies twice this week 1st time was on Kimbolton road just before the last 2 bends going in to Kimbolton, the buggers were there on the way back too, 2nd time on Colyton Road just before the road dips down as you are about to round the corner to go over the Oroua River bridge, heading towards Kimbolton Road
Attacked myself and my 4 year old son who was on a kids bike. Followed us for a few hundred meters from tree to tree with constant attacks. Even with him off the bike walking.
Swooped twice whilst riding a bike down Princes Hwy (inbound). First time the magpie swooped just over my head and the second time it swooped then pecked (or clawed) my helmet, resulting in me losing balance, falling off the bike and causing the following injuries: Grazed nose, mouth, chin, chest &; knees as well as a broken finger.
Swooped 3 or 4 times from a magpie in the large tree next to the first crossing on Limestone Ave in front of the War Memorial and near the round-a-bout. Cycling at about 14km p.h.
