Magpie attack on Cyclist - 30 Royston Rd, Halls Gap VIC 3381
Had organised to visit my Dad who lives in Halls Gap and brought my bike. Went for a ride on the bike path toward the town village, but as I got past Royston Road, I was swooped without warning by a magpie that made no sound at all as it hit me. (I had originally kept an eye and ear out for magpies as I had been recently attacked near where I live in Meadow Heights) I wasn't injured, as it seemingly slapped the right side of my face with its wings. I was very startled, shocked and cried out in surprise. Sadly the rest of my ride was tainted as I spent it cautiously and nervously looking out for a repeat swooping for any other magpies in the area.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - Ainslie Flats, 16 Hayley St, Ainslie ACT 2602
This magpie's presence has already been recorded here. I rode past (early) the previous day and didn't see him but today he more than made up for it. Very aggressive and lingered clawing at my helmet for some time - not easy to ride down the street with a magpie wing in your eye! Only two cars around but this can be a busy little road - might be best to find another route for the next few weeks :-)
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 29 Captain Cook Dr, Kurnell NSW 2231
Swooped whilst cycling up Cape Solander Drive into the National Park, just next to where the old ticket gates were. Don’t think it was a magpie, but didn’t get a look at it as was swooped from behind
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 2 Crescent Rd, Kalamunda WA 6076
On my mountain bike, not too far from the Jorgensen Park carpark. The critter swooped 3 times from behind, no contact made. What a time to be alive. Would ride past again for the thrill.
Injured:No
