In spring breeding male magpies become very aggressive to anyone approaching their nests.

Cyclists find themselves becoming favoured targets.





Councils erect warning signs....

...and advice for avoiding attacks.

There's even an ace website tracking aggressive magpies.

Hot tip: maybe avoid Brisbane for a few months.

According to experts, a bumper winter mating season may make spring 2016 a particularly long swooping season.
