Magpie attack on Runner - Pandanus Ave, Brisbane Airport QLD 4008
This magpie flies in and attacks from its stoop on the airport side of the road. It lies in the tree line approximately 150m from Pandanus Ave. Loves to attack and disturb runners/cyclists, walkers are given mercy. This magpie uses the dead ground as cover and concealment, revealing itself only when it is too late to evade its devastating, relentless atacks. Proceed with caution.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 173 Varsity Parade, Varsity Lakes QLD 4227
This is no about the 5th time I have been swooped from this location. I have been very careful to try and avoid going past the nest, and when I see him, making eye contact. However, he blind sided me yesterday. Luckily only one swoop this time. The nest appear to be a tree on the other side of the road. This morning I witnessed 4 people get swooped one after the other, with one poor guy chased all the way along Varsity Parade, almost getting knocked down by a car in the process of crossing the road whilst under distraction.
Injured:No
