Magpie attack on Cyclist - 43 Scrivener St, O'Connor ACT 2602
Magpie swooped my son's friend twice while we were on our bikes. It didn't make contact either time. I think this could be the same magpie that was swooping in this area last year.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 181 William Webb Dr, Evatt ACT 2617
Looks like the William Web wing fighter has commenced his swooping season. First reported attack last 2 years was 30 July both times, so reasonably consistent. He was perched in the reserve area between William Web Drive and and the bike path on the right as you go towards Ginninderra Drive. He had one swoop at a cyclist on the road. Not sure if he made contact or not, no apparent injury. I was walking the dog and was left alone. I have been swooped by this bird multiple times over the last couple of years when I am cycling, never when dog walking. He will swoop both the bike path and the road - depending which way he is facing. If you see a magpie perched on a lamp post by the road or power line over the bike path in this area, be prepared. Time to get my swoop-away hat out.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 103 Petrie Plaza, Canberra ACT 2601
I wasn't sure if i was actually swooped cause it only swooped me once and it's so early, but a previous record above this confirms it. I h8 magpies, all year round, they hate me too, this is war.
Injured:No
