Was that near the golf course? Not many attacks recorded near there: https://www.magpiealert.com/SwoopingMagpieMapNSW.p...
and what time did you leave work? If I left work at 5pm and ran for 1:46 it would be very very dark by the time I got home.
It was this one:
Left work about 11am, wasn't supposed to be there...
No swooping the family when they ran through there on Sunday morning.
i got swooped (proper contact swooped) by a noisy miner
yesterday while running... i thought we had a deal with them!
The first bird I got attacked by in Australia (1989) was a butcher bird, never been bothered by one since.
Didn't like the taste of freshly minted pom?
What about that Alexa bird? ;-)
That might depend on the pecking order?
