3 magpies were attacking children during their tee ball game this morning. The same 3 children were being swooped during the game and 1 girl was swooped 15 times during the hour that she played.
I have never seen magpies be so aggressive to attack within a large group. The players were not near their trees and often the magpies would pass over 5 closer people to attack the same children who were playing the furthest away from them.
The children had to wear helmets whilst fielding to protect them and the magpies did make contact with the helmets several times.
Other people walking past the oval were also swooped by the same magpies.
I was punched hard in the left cheekbone from behind causing a deep 2cm scratch and drawing blood. It then came back for a second hit on the same side adding an extra puncher above (more blood!). Three days later my cheek is still swollen and bruised... I donâ€™t think the bird was a magpie but it is very aggressive and very dangerous at such a popular location!
I After having been attacked by Magpies around Centrelink, 500m north, I went to Hungry JackÂ´s and was attacked again by a different and very aggressive Magpie near the premises. After this, I ate something at HJÂ´s and was attacked again 30 minutes later in my way out.
