2 adults and young were in middle of street and had to pass by using parked cars on street to assist my safe journey getting passed by them. But obviously seen and swooped upon by both birds for approx 20 metres up street. Always wear hat thankfully or would have been injured on head.
Quite relentless in attack by coming from 2 different directions.
He doesn't just swoop - he absolutely smashes you!! Just keeps on coming! Last year he used to get me every day coming home Eastbound in the afternoons but this year he's getting me Westbound in the mornings on the way to work VERY aggressive!
Swooped many times by our notorious local butcher bird. He usually hits the helmet but I was ready this time with a piece of stick that he was wary of. Unlike many magpies, he always gives a warning, so not too hard to avoid.
