Magpie attack on Cyclist - 337 Bayswater Rd, Bayswater North VIC 3153
It's normally on the other side of the major road and if it attacks it's usually as you are cycling - barreling down crossing the creek. This time I barreled down, and had my eye across the road at the Eucalypts and saw... nothing, when suddenly the squawking went off on the OTHER side behind me - turned in time to see the thing inches away and it reared - tried once more - then went away.

Magpie attack on Walker - 102 Brighton Rd, Ripponlea VIC 3185
Two magpies on the verge beside the Foot clinic, a young man walked past and got swooped out of nowhere by a third one. It went back and swooped him again and then sang at him passive-aggressively. Same magpie then flew across the eight lanes of traffic and two tram lines to swoop another guy in the other side of the road who was just minding his own business. Luckily for me it gave me time to run like a mad woman up the street and away from this crazy bird :-)

Magpie attack on Walker - 367 St Vincents Rd, Banyo QLD 4014
Swooped 3 times by a magpie while out for a walk with my baby in a stroller. I didn't see or hear the bird until it swooped. Luckily my 5mth old daughter was asleep & protected in the stroller so she didn't hear my screams. We made a hasty run down St Vincent's Rd for a much needed coffee to recover

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 1925 Don Rd, Don Valley VIC 3139
Magpie swooped and hit me pretty good on the helmet. Was descending off Don Road so fast enough that they only had two goes at me before backing off. Caution when climbing!

Magpie attack on Walker - 98 Brighton Rd, Ripponlea VIC 3185
Saw a male magpie on the grass verge just past Fuller Road entrance. I crossed over the road to the grass reserve to avoid getting close but it swooped at me and made contact 3 times as I continued north up Brighton Road. I did run and scream which didn't help! I passed a girl on Fuller Road an hour later who mentioned she had been attacked by a magpie and to avoid that corner so I diverted back around onto Hotham Grove and that area seemed ok.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - Sunnybank, 497 Jamberoo Rd, Jamberoo NSW 2533
Heavy contact with helmet while riding down hill in northerly direction. Stopped and got off bike but magpie continued to swoop repeatedly. Have not been swooped here for a few seasons so was very surprised. A friend was also swooped at same location the next day (Sunday) heading south, towards Jamberoo.
