Thinking things through

I'm sorry the sign is out of focus (one confused photographer!) but it says
"Magpie Territory"

Magpies nest in this area and may swoop on intruders.
This is normal defensive behaviour  during the breeding season and lasts up to six weeks.

Protect yourself.

  • Move quickly through the area
  • Don't run
  • Wear a hat or carry an umbrella
  • Bike riders dismount and walk.

From the same Council that brings you the playground.

Red wing blackbirds here do the same thing for a few weeks in spring-summer. The males will be quite territorial, and they'll fly for the back of the head of a passerby.
