Last year a collaboration with set up in Adelaide to plot magpie attacks on Google maps
.It got a bit of traction so I thought I'd get on board with the 2010 edition.
You'll see at the top of the page a link to our Magpie Watch
page. This page has a Google map of known Magpie attacks logged for Sydney, if you have a Google account you can follow the links and add your own.
I've not been swooped yet this year up here in Brissy, but I did notice one scouting around nearby a little hill on one of my regular routes. The little hill is one that usually slows me down so I can't use my usual maggie avoidance technique of trying to outrun the buggers. Might have to avoid that bit of road for the next few months! I'm assuming they are pretty savage up this way though, based on the sheer number of cable ties I see around.
Have fun with the map, hopefully it saves a few people from any unpleasant run ins.
