Interesting link to a video posted to Adelaide Cyclist. I am glad helmets are compulsory in Victoria. I remember as a child being savaged by a Magpie when I encroached on its territory.

Ah yes, but the outcome seems to indicate that the helmet is the problem. Not that I'd like to try it, and I certainly recall being swooped sans-brainbucket myself as a young tacker. Are cable-ties and suchlike supposed to dissuade magpies altogether though? I assumed the theory was that they just directed their attention away from the surface of the scone, or possibly kept them at just sufficient distance so they couldn't get a proper peck in.
