Magpie swooped myself 4 year old 2 year old and dog 6 times as we approached the playground and we had to flee without a play as he continuosly swooped whilst we walked across the play ground. We approached from the bike path after coming out under the bridge and had to quickly head for the IGA shops. We were swooped until we had reached the middle of the road
Second attack in the same day, this time coming up Lower Plenty Road towards Waiora Rd- Another hard peck/impact to crown of head, decent amount of blood. Very aggressive bird, worst attacks in 5 years. I tired to avoid the maggie by coming up via St James Road but it found me. Will be avoiding the area entirely and not using Rosanna Station.
This is one of 4 attacks I have had on this street (all of them on the first half facing towards the main road) have been left with a scar on the left side on off my face last week and today i was given a nasty peck on the back of my head and was bleeding profusely... stay away from this street.. if you are walking to the tram take an alternative route as this magpie is known too swoop frequently and is very territorial
