Reporting on behalf of my mates.
Magpie had swooped both my mates and then attacked one of them on the left ear leaving blood to run down his ear and neck and onto school uniform.
The usual dangerous bird that lives here. goes for the ears and face. Council have been advised in previous years so when someone finally loses an eye or falls in front of a car, you know who to blame for not relocating this bird.
Another attack by the psycho magpie on shared path on Old Windsor Road between Norbrick Drive and footbridge. He also attacked on the return journey but no injuries reported by the bunch. 2 riders opted for a detour to avoid this pest, and they were hassled by another magpie on the other side of the road ! Maggies must be covering all bases!
Around the corner of Wakelands Rd and Solitary Islands Way. I was heading north on the shared path. He first swooped me pretty much at the corner, and then followed me north for a few hundred metres. He wasn't about an hour or so earlier when a group of us headed south! (Maybe not an early bird?!)
Swooped by magpie while crossing Doonside Road from Eastern side of bike path to western side.. Usually this bird only swoops a couple of times but he followed me for a distance along the Bungarribee path.Swooped another 4 or 5 times. Also attacked on return journey a few hours later but he did not follow me after I dropped food for him
