The UK is unfortunately suffering an outbreak of Avian influenza (bird flu). At this current moment of posting this message we are not aware of any of our RFC waters being affected.
Avian influenza, also known as bird flu, is a contagious viral disease in animals, caused by a virus loosely related to human influenza. Some strains of the disease have been passed to humans but this is very rare,
and usually occurs only after very close contact with infected birds or animals.
A few fisheries in our local area have reported finding dead swans and ducks on their waters.
We ask you that if you do see any dead birds, that you DO NOT touch them. If you find any dead swans please report it by contacting SWAN SUPPORT on 07968 868172.
