Magpie attack on Walker - 263 Manningham Rd, Templestowe Lower VIC 3107
A magpie swooped at me about 4 times. I tried to escape and cross Mannigham Rd and it followed me and kept swooping! I sat in a bus shelter until I was sure it had flown away LOL I was a bit rattled but luckily, I didn't get hurt.
Injured:No

There is a magpie located at Balmoral Park which swoops down to protect its nest. It will follow you all throughout the entire park. Please be careful especially its near the school. This is the second time its done it to me on two separate days. I was jogging at that time.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 79 Rachelle Rd, Keilor East VIC 3033
I decided to go for a walk at approximately 3pm and had just cross the corner of Noga Ave and Rachelle Rd. Out of nowhere I was struck at the back of the head so violently. To my bewilderment I looked up and saw the Magpie that had struck me. My head began aching and I placed my hand on where I was struck and was bleeding. My head is still aching from being swooped.
Injured:Yes

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 85 Sherwood Ave, Chelsea VIC 3196
Swooped from Behind twice whilst cycling, no actual contact this time. He followed me, possibly considering a third strike, but I had picked up the pace by this point, and I guess I was far enough away to satisfy him.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 1 Aquatic Dr, Maribyrnong VIC 3032
Relatively quiet past week, Colin only swooped half heartedly, seemed to lack interest. However, this morning was back with renewed vigour! Swooped 3 times after announcing intentions quite vocally. No contact.
Injured:No

Magpie attack on Cyclist - 30 Royston Rd, Halls Gap VIC 3381
Had organised to visit my Dad who lives in Halls Gap and brought my bike. Went for a ride on the bike path toward the town village, but as I got past Royston Road, I was swooped without warning by a magpie that made no sound at all as it hit me. (I had originally kept an eye and ear out for magpies as I had been recently attacked near where I live in Meadow Heights) I wasn't injured, as it seemingly slapped the right side of my face with its wings. I was very startled, shocked and cried out in surprise. Sadly the rest of my ride was tainted as I spent it cautiously and nervously looking out for a repeat swooping for any other magpies in the area.
Injured:No
