G'day all

A first for me today.  I was swooped and had my helmet struck by a Magpie-lark 
while I was riding to and from work.  The spot was notorious for an aggressive 
Magpie over the years but that individual  has departed and the Magpie-lark 
seems intent on continuing the tradition.  I could only find a couple of 
references to this behaviour and they seemed to all relate to an individual in 
an Adelaide park.

Anyone else seen this behaviour with Magpie-larks?  I must have a look in
