No, this is not a post about Collingwood (although hopefully they will get beaten this weekend!) but the other feathered variety of magpie, currently in battle season.
Now I get the whole “protecting the nest” thing, I really do. Having been attacked on my bike several times over the past week, I was wondering if there are some helpful suggestions out there as to how to combat the problem.
Do those plastic ties sticking out from the helmet actually work?
Oh and I have tried getting off my bike and walking through the killing fields but this doesn’t seem to work.
[ED – I’ve been swooped more this year than any other, how about the rest of you?]
