Magpie attack on Cyclist - 2 Esplanade, Point Turton SA 5575
Wheeling my bicycle down the ramp to go from Bayview Rd to The Esplanade and the "walk the York " track, 3 magpies alighted on the power-lines above me. As I continued, one began swooping. I turned and left as quickly as possible with the same one continuing its attack. After riding a short distance it stopped.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Walker - 275 North Terrace, Adelaide SA 5000
I was standing at the pedestrian crossing waiting to cross the road when I noticed a piping shriek (small magpie) hovering about one metre behind & above my right shoulder. I turned my back to the bird then just as I was about to cross the road the bird swooped around and hit me straight in my right eye. Injury sustained: full thickness laceration straight through the middle of the cornea with possible lens involvement & high risk for infection, requiring hospital admission and emergency surgery, with 7 sutures to my cornea and some permanent vision loss.
Injured:Yes

Magpie attack on Cyclist - LOT 51 Basket Range Rd, Basket Range SA 5138
Quite aggressive- one magpie probably went for me about 3 times, quite close but managed to duck while it went from pole to pole and attacked again. Then its friend came and joined in- another few attacks, quite aggressive still.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Walker - 151 Military Rd, Henley Beach South SA 5022
Was walking north along the footpath adjacent to Henley Beach Primary School during my jog when the magpie started swooping. Ran back the other way and headed east along Lexington Road and it still continued to swoop. Attack stopped after I was 50m from my original position. No contact was made during the incident but it came close.
Injured:No
