Thanks to all those people who provided suggestions regarding how a bike rider might avoid being attacked by magpies.  The most constructive seems to be having a flag attached to the back of the bike, with the flag being above head level.  It will be tested soon and I'll report on the results.
The web site had an article which I thought was good at educating people, and it's noted in the round of emails that someone accessed this and showed it around a school where it was well received.  Good stuff.
Happy Birding to you all
(I know it makes me happy)
