Magpie attack on Cyclist - Drakeford Dr, Kambah ACT 2902
Persistent bugger hit my helmet at least 5 times over a few hundred metres. I think it lost interest in me because another cyclist was coming the other way. How he was ok!
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - Morshead Dr, Campbell ACT 2612
Been cycling here for a couple weeks and never seen it before. Magpie is with 2 chicks (possibly teaching the little buggers how to swoop) Got off my bike, walked 50 m, hopped back on. Within seconds the menace was zooming towards me. He was watching the whole time waiting for me to get back on
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Walker - Baldessin Cres, Canberra ACT 2601
I was warn-swooped twice (going to get my coffee & coming back) by a Magpie in the trees inside the green bit between Balmain Cres & University House back entry. No clicking beak, no contact, but definitely swooped both ways. This was pretty unusual as normally I sit under them several times a week, I also pass under them most days to get coffee and they usually let me - no problems.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 66 Gwen Meredith Loop, Franklin ACT 2913
Swooped once while riding my bike North towards Gunghalin. Stopped and started pushing. Lost eye contact for a moment and was swooped again. From then on I maintained eye contact and continued pushing the bike for another 100m. No more problems
Injured:No
