Spring brings magpie madness

Spring has sprung and with the new season comes a new threat - magpies. 

From late August to November, the black and white birds become aggressive to protect their young during nesting season 

But never fear, we have compiled a map of known swoop spots across western Sydney to help vulnerable cyclists and pedestrians avoid being swooped.

Have we missed one? Let us know by emailing the location to meg.francis@fairfaxmedia.com.au and we will add it to the map.
