Magpie attack on Walker - 177-179 Carinish Rd, Clayton VIC 3168
I usually walk home from Clayton station along Carnish road. For the past 1 week this aggressive magpie swoops closer to my head clicking its beak. It has happened 4 times so far and I was lucky to escape without any injuries. Have decided to change my walking route.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 2 Arrunga Ct, Patterson Lakes VIC 3197
A very large sitting on a house mailbox/brickwork started chasing for more than 100, only stopped chasing once I passed the starting point of the chase. No injuries but it scary as this magpie looked particularly menacing attacking me many times.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 169-173 Pittwater Rd, Manly NSW 2095
It swooped out of nowhere and hit me hard in the side of the face and neck, at first i though someone had thrown something at me..like a big bean bag. It didnt make a sound. Went for my ear and pecked it, which was painful but didnt draw blood. It would have ripped out an earring had i been wearing them. Fortunately no second swoop
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 199 Waterloo Rd, Marsfield NSW 2122
I was cycling quite slowly when something strongely hit my helmet. I'm French, it was my first magpie attack, hopefully I had heard about it. So I tripled my speed, and the bird did not hit me anymore.
Injured:No
