Oops. Magpie swoops on Nine reporter

Spare a thought for intrepid reporter Brett McLeod who was about to do a live cross to Nine News when a pesky magpie had other ideas.

But he soldiered on unharmed.

Two weeks ago Nine’s Melbourne management issued an all-staff alert to beware of a swooping bird outside the Bourke St. station -although McLeod was pecked across the other side of town.

In 2009 a wayward seagull also invaded Nine News -just as Peter Hitchener was throwing to Brett McLeod.
