I was waiting at the top of the traffic lights ready to turn right on the road when the magpie swooped and got my left eye - it scratched my cornea and I had to get medical treatment. This was the second attack (Last attack walking on 20/09/2017)
Running down Salt Water Prom. Near the child care centre on Saltwater Prom. Magpie swooped once, just missed my head. Further down was a cyclist and he was swooped 4 times. That was enough for me to turn around and go back. They scare me. Will be gym workouts until the season is over
Got swooped by one even though I was looking at it from afar; ended up ducking down as I thought it was going to make contact with my head and in doing so, I lost my balance and fell on the footpath causing injury to my left knee.
This one attacks on both sides of the street but within a small radius of roughly 10-20metres but appears to leave out those wearing hoodies.
Walking my son home from school.
We were walking down Rosemary St and turned into the little playground area to cut through onto Kierens Way. When My son got to the grass, a magpie who was on the grass suddenly saw us and took off and flew onto the power line on Rosemary St. I looked up at it as it was watching us carefully. I then keep walking with my son and heard wings flapping and turned and looked up to see the same magpie coming down towards me, it saw me, squawked and flew away into one of the 3 trees in the centre of the park. I saw two other mapgies (babies?) that also flew into the trees. I watched them all carefully as we walked under the trees incase he/she decided to swoop on my son (who was unaware). No further attack.
