November the 3rd! He's swooped me in previous years, but this is the first time this year. I thought it was all over bar the shouting. This was pretty tame really, a single snap of the beak, at a distance from my head he didn't get really close, and then the sound of his wings as he fled the scene.
Persistent, but mostly lame. Connected once with my scalp, through the helmet. Came in with a side attack today, which was pretty scary. This one's been swooping me here, since around the 20th of September. I thought it'd be done by now!
Was running and magpie hit me in the side off my face directly in my left eye socket. Knocked me to the ground and then swooped and hit my back. Drew blood and had a black eye for a week. If I wasn't wearing sunglasses I think it would of done serious damage to my eye.
