These guys have made contact.
Over the last three months I have been constantly attacked by a very aggressive magpie. In the last week there are now two of them, they take turns to swoop from multiple directions over a stretch of a hundred metres.
Saw a currawong swoop a cyclist about 5 times over a distance of about 8 metres. I saw this bird attack people at least once a week in Spring. I was hoping it would have stopped by now.
Wheeling my bicycle down the ramp to go from Bayview Rd to The Esplanade and the ";walk the York "; track, 3 magpies alighted on the power-lines above me. As I continued, one began swooping. I turned and left as quickly as possible with the same one continuing its attack. After riding a short distance it stopped.
Whenever I walk past the corner of stannard st and holder st, in front of 23 stannard st bentley, a magpie will peck me on the head. I've been attacked 3 times. I tried walking on the other side but it followed me.
