Just as I was cycling up the hill here. He followed me basically from the road to the bridge. As soon I got off my bike and walked, he ignored me. As soon as I got back on and pedalled, he would swoop. Tricky little bugger!
Be careful as a spill here, near the steps, could be fatal.
Bike path by flying fox... my 6 yo was swooped twice in 5 minutes by same bird. One minute later it swooped another kid. Both had black bike helmets with white ....does this matter? Iâ€™m new to oz. thanks
Swooped from behind and it had a couple of goes pecking and scratching my helmet. I sped off keeping an eye on its shadow over my head for 20-30 meters till it relented. Avoiding that route for now
Coming down the hill was swooped by magpie who was trying to get at my face. Followed me for quite a while.
Recommended avoiding this area as bird was quite aggressive and as mentioned was aiming for face.
Attacked while riding bike
Chased and bitten by a mean bird while cycling around the neighbourhood. Local kids mentioned every year same bird is patrolling that area and chasing cyclers and bikers.
