Swooped by a Magpie in early spring. He didn't get that close.

There are a few drops of my precious blood on Old Windsor Road from a vicious, sustained and unprovoked attack last Saturday, around Vineyard just short of Windsor. Up there again tomorrow with better protection.

Is that on Ryrie St, North Ryde just before Epping Rd? There is a bird, or a new generation of birds, which attack cyclists in that location and have done for years.

Not so sure about swooping maggies.

"I love WITWIMBs ;-)"

Too much idle time searching Prof Google?

Don't you need to be out riding a Lynskey somewhere?

Absolutely, but ill health for the last couple of months has stuffed that up.  Sick of being sick!

Get better soon!

Last weekend I was attacked by 2 magpies at the same spot simultaneously.  One from the rear and the other came in from the side.  Has anyone come across this behaviour?
