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

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 33 Ainslie Pl, Canberra ACT 2601
This attack was actually by a Pied Currawong, not a magpie. I was cycling a short distance through the city on the footpath, not wearing a helmet. The magpie aggressively swooped me 4 times, making heavy contact with my head, It perused me for a long distance through the city's pedestrian mall: 2 blocks. Not sure what set it off, as I've not been swooped by a Currawong before. My lack of bike helmet may have given it more confidence.
Injured:Yes

Magpie attack on Walker - 146 Goodfellows Rd, Murrumba Downs QLD 4503
Was walking out from beneath the big jacaranda on the corner of Esperance and Goodfellow, and then it attacked. Not too vicious, but quite persistent, and rather wide-ranging. Wearing my polarised sunglasses atop my head seemed to discourage it a little bit.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Walker - 15-17 Whitefriars Way, Donvale VIC 3111
I was walking home and this Magpie just flew back and forth over my head like 2 or 3 times until I started defending mysef, then it just flew into one of the nearby trees. This has happened to me twice today.
Injured:No
