Magpie attack on Walker - 2 Lardelli Dr, Ryde NSW 2112
Walking through the small park area near all the new Putney Hill apartments, which lead to Victoria Road. This area is surrounded by trees, I was walking through and heard flapping behind me, turned around and saw the magpie on the grass staring at me, heard the flapping again but continued walking faster. Second occasion, same area but heard a squawking noise, started to swoop at me again from behind, covered my head with my bag. Doesn't follow you once on the main road.

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 115 Naturaliste Blvd, Iluka WA 6028
A magpie flew straight at my helmet when I was cycling through the corner of Ocean Gate Parade (Iluka) and Marmion Avenue (Joondalup). I was not injured but was quite shaken up; the magpie appeared every bit as shaken up as I was as it sat on the ground looking quite dazed for a while after its attack on me.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 36 High Park Cres, Little Mountain QLD 4551
This maggie is a very late season one. I've been swooped every morning 28 November to 1 December. It is non-aggressive, and will chase you down the hill (when going fast) but not up it. Three or four quick chasing swoops, and you can see the shadow of it quite clearly.
Injured:No
