Wellington Community Notice

AVIAN FLU OUTBREAK

On Wednesday 11 November a zone was declared around a farm at Knapton, Bush Bank and Wellington is in the 10k outer zone for that outbreak. The strain is H5N8 and Public Health England advises that there is little danger to the virus passing to humans. Please do not touch dead birds.

At the time of writing, (14 November) an avian flu prevention zone has now been declared across the whole of England to mitigate the risk of the disease spreading.

Unfortunately, the outer zone of our local outbreak, includes Bodenham, Wellington and Brockhall gravel pits where there are large numbers of wild water fowl.

Major poultry producers have to take special measures and backyard owners of small numbers of poultry including chickens, ducks and geese are urged to strengthen their biosecurity measures in order to prevent further outbreaks of avian flu.

If you should find a dead bird particularly, gulls, swans, geese, ducks and birds of prey, please contact Defra help line on 03459-335577. Defra collect some of these birds to test them to help understand how the disease is distributed throughout the country. Full information can be found on the government web site, https://www.gov.uk/guidance/avian-influenza-bird-flu.
