Magpie attack on Cyclist - 1300 Johnston Road, Yarloop WA 6218
Several pairs along of maggies along the same 1km stretch leaving Nannup, all aggressive and prolonged attacks ( for except the lady who feeds them at 5 each day, so far). Also encountered bad maggies on Eckersley Rd Yarloop, south of the roadworks. Road popular with training roadies. Johnston Rd is open and has many maggies.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - Emu Bank, Belconnen ACT 2617
Cycling into Westfield car park and this guy hit me at least a dozen times. I did everything by the book but to no avail. He even followed me up a flight of stairs. This was all inside the undercover car park. Two days later he did the same thing to my wife. I suffered a small cut to the ear.
Injured:Yes

Magpie attack on Walker - 89 Rachelle Road, Keilor East VIC 3033
Well there I was just minding my own business and this **** started swooping the shit out of me. I tried to run under a tree to get away from it but the **** followed me under there. I was left traumatized and in need of a new pair of undies.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Walker - 6 Rose Crescent, Mosman NSW 2088
Very aggressive Maggie on the Cremorne Point walk MOSMAN Bay side. Has a large territory and is relentless with his swooping and yelling. I think he just loves doing it. Saw him scare the hell out of a young runner and when she fell over he continued his attack as she scrabbled on the ground. He bombards all day and picks on singles and groups alike. This is one bad bird!!!
Injured:No
