Winter Waterfowl is on its way to members

On the day we went to print, we heard that two members with significant collections have been hit and their birds will have been destroyed by the time you read this. The current outbreak is now the largest ever UK outbreak of avian influenza with 36 confirmed cases (prior to this the largest number of cases was 26 cases in 2020/2021 and 13 cases in 2016/2017). All four home nations are now affected, spread approximately half and half between commercial birds and 'back yard flocks'. Our thoughts are with everyone impacted by this disease and its wider consequences.
