Hit behind the left ear under the helmet rim with full force, cutting my ear and head. Only attacked once after I walked out of the area to the roundabout. Still had a sore head the next morning......
I was rolling up to the Whitmore Street Park on my Bike. As I approached the park, Maggy swooped me once, and then landed in a tree just above me. I was going to the park so I hopped off the bike and took my helmet off. It didn't swoop again, but it was definitely giving me the evil eye.
It%u2019s like December, what is the matter with this stupid bird?
The magpie hit the back of my helmet as I was out of the saddle going up the hill. Doesn't it know that the attack season is over? Does it have a second clutch? Was it angry with me for not voting for the magpie as bird of the year (it won without my support). Or did it not like my new helmet? I have been up this stretch of road many times in the past few months without an attack.
Very aggressive bird attacked me frontally on the way in and on the way back. It didn't just swoop but attacked me persistently. I slowed down when noticed it and was following its movements. When it was coming close I simply ducked down a bit and avoided contact.
Few km further down the road I was swooped by another bird.
Hello, I was walking in penshurst park on saturday and a magpie chased me for about 3 minutes.
It was flapping and squarking at me from behind.It was a scary experience.
Running down Burns road when I got hit on the head from behind by a magpie. Felt like be whacked with a stick. Carried on running and got hit again. 4 cuts on the head - one quite deep.
Was sitting in on the balcony with my partner when all of a sudden flying in fast were 3 magpies that swooped us.. weren't injured we just went inside but then the 3 magpies stayed on the balcony staring at my partner and i and even one of the magpie was standing on the outside table. Wish i could upload photos to show people.
Heard a bird call so I quickly turned my head to see a magpie hovering above. Waved my drink bottle which scared her off. Was swooped a second time on my way out of the park.
