Latest on Bird Flu 18th January 2018 – No further news or restrictions at 06/05/18

Defra has put in place an Avian Influenza Prevention Zone covering the whole of England

The prevention zone means bird keepers across the country must:

  • Ensure the areas where birds are kept are unattractive to wild birds, for example by netting ponds, and by removing wild bird food sources
  • Feed and water your birds in enclosed areas to discourage wild birds
  • Minimise movement in and out of bird enclosures
  • Clean and disinfect footwear and keep areas where birds live clean and tidy
  • Reduce any existing contamination by cleansing and disinfecting concrete areas, and fencing off wet or boggy areas
  • Currently the run areas DO NOT have to be covered, but this situation may change so probably best to do so
