Was attempting delivery to 7 Hayne St Woodend via long driveway from the road and was swooped halfway between road and the house. No contact just the war cry and tick tick noise.
Lone magpie swooped on group while we were cycling east along the Bulimba Creek Cycleway, drawing blood on the cheek bone of one of our members who was wearing a yellow safety work shirt.
