Magpie Alert – Barwon River Path

It’s almost spring and the magpies have started their annual swooping.

Two (at least) are active around the river path

  • near the boat ramp near the criterium track
  • near the turnoff to Riversdale Road (near Balyang Sanctuary)

Magpies near Showgrounds and at Mount Duneed:

  • Just outside the main entrance to the Showgrounds on Breakwater Road. The bird is nesting in the big gum tree near the gate.
  • Surfcoast Highway just before the Mount Duneed Roundabout on the Geelong bound side. This bird is at this spot every year and it is very persistent in its swooping.

Please let us know if you have any other sightings and we’ll keep updating!
