Problems with swooping birds

At certain times of the year you may notice signs placed around some of our parks and reserves to advise that Magpies, in particular, might have a tendency to swoop.

They do this whilst they are rearing their young.

It is always advisable to stay away from these places at those times of the year or if it is absolutely necessary to pass through those areas, have a read of the link below to ensure you do it in the safest way possible — to you and the bird/s.
