Magpie attack on Cyclist - 24 Kendall Inlet, Cabarita , NSW 2137


Third attack of the day in a different location. This time the magpie hit him on the back of the helmet, it was very sudden, I just heard and felt the knock. Not clear whether it was the same bird as a few minutes earlier but I doubt, as it happened a few hundred meters away and in-between the two attacks there has been nothing. This was the most scaring of the three events of the day. Also, it took place in between two buildings so it was more unexpected. I felt so down that I went back to the Cabarita Wharf walking the bike and ended my biking for the day. I do not have a car and I use my bike for every daily movement including commuting to work. I confess that I start suffering of a magpie complex :-(
