Magpie attack on Walker - 5 Brighton Rd, Sandgate QLD 4017
Saw the silhouette of a bird above me on the Town Hall wall, sounded like it landed in the tree overhead. I looked up but couldn't see the bird in the near-dark. Kept walking, several steps further I was hit just above my right ear. Turned and saw a magpie in the tree overhead. Stood still and watched him for a bit, then continued walking. He didn't swoop again.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Dog Walker - 105 Macoma St, Banyo QLD 4014
I was walking my medium sized dog and we were both swooped. I had a cap on, my neck was protected by my sweatshirt and I protected my dogs eyes with my hand. No injuries to either.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Dog Walker - 37 Railway Parade, Banyo QLD 4014
This is probably a serious location as it was on the footpath right at the back of the St Pius Primary School playing grounds. I was walking my medium sized dog and we were both swooped. I had a cap on and my neck was protected by my sweatshirt. I was able to pick up a small branch and protect my dog's eyes with that. No injuries to either.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Walker - 10 McMaster St, Nundah QLD 4012
Walking along the north side of the street can be risky - they tend to nest on top of the apartments here. Once saw the shadow follow me from Toombul Shopping Centre to here before swooping.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Walker - 49A Knight St, Greenslopes QLD 4120
I was walking along the bike path, southbound, and as I emerged from the Juliette St underpass it hit me from behind with a single attack and then when I spun around and made eye contact with it, it dropped to the ground.
Injured:Yes

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 150 Brook St, Lutwyche QLD 4030
Bit of a flutter above the head didn't think much of it but then it came back for seconds. Only warning up and didn't make contact but will see as the season progresses.
Injured:No
