Thursday afternoon I was swooped by a rather smallish Magpie at least 4 times.

Pls stay alert or stay away from the area.

Location: walk past the horse gate and enter right side of woodlands close to 
the creek.

I was following a pair of Common Bronzewings in courtship display and a magpie 
swooped very close to my head. Too bad I left my hat in the car.
