Swooping season

-

Yes, it's magpie nesting and swooping season again, so be prepared.

The maggies swoop to protect their young and territory, and are protected in Victoria under the Wildlife Act of 1975. Hefty penalties apply.

Anyone who may be entering a swooping hot spot is reminded to be prepared to protect their eyes and head and don’t run.

There is a swooping bird map which welcomes reports of swooping incidents and can be accessed by visiting www.wildlife.vic.gov.au/managingwi­ldlife/swooping birds
