Numerous swoops from magpie in front of holiday rental between 12/10/2016 and 15/10/2016 Coming from power lines and trees on the esplanade No injuries just fear instilled in children and parents
Was caught out unawares by this bird riding into a fierce headwind with no easy nor speedy means of escape! Swooped up to 8 times over about a 100m stretch of Franklin Pde, fortunately the bird was struggling with the wind as much as I so no contact made despite many vocal attempts. Will be sure to keep an eye out for this one in future. Very aggressive and persistent bird.
