Just as I was cycling up the hill here. He followed me basically from the road to the bridge. As soon I got off my bike and walked, he ignored me. As soon as I got back on and pedalled, he would swoop. Tricky little bugger!
Be careful as a spill here, near the steps, could be fatal.
Bike path by flying fox... my 6 yo was swooped twice in 5 minutes by same bird. One minute later it swooped another kid. Both had black bike helmets with white ....does this matter? Iâ€™m new to oz. thanks
Chased and bitten by a mean bird while cycling around the neighbourhood. Local kids mentioned every year same bird is patrolling that area and chasing cyclers and bikers.
First time Iâ€™ve even been attacked by a magpie while cycling and must be some honor to have been attacked by the most aggressive magpie in Australia! Got attacked along the tree line past the overhead pedestrians bridge towards to the overhead bridge you can cycle over to the M7 cycle way. He also got me on my way back to Bella vista. Have to be careful as there are also people waking with their dogs along the same route and itâ€™s a bit dangerous getting attacked while trying to avoid the pedestrians. Might have to totally avoid that way and get to the M7 cycle way via Norwest boulevard. Got a small cut near the ear.
Swooped and attacked about 4 times walking on Northcott Rd towards Turner St near the bus stop. Ended up with some cuts on my left ear! Be careful, walk on the other side of the street or avoid the area if you can!
