Swan tests positive for avian in­fluenza

Shooting Times & Country Magazine - - CONTENTS -

A mute swan on a wild bird re­serve in the Nor­folk Broads has tested positive for bird flu, lead­ing to re­newed calls for poul­try keep­ers to re­main watch­ful for signs of the dis­ease.

This is the first positive case of bird flu con­firmed by DE­FRA for 16 weeks, but the risk level is still “low” and no pro­tec­tion zone will be put in place.
