Tuesday 27 September

The Animal Plant and Health Agency (APHA) has detected a number of cases of bird flu (avian influenza) in poultry, and wild and captive birds, across the east of England, including in Nedging in Babergh (see below).

In response, the agency has declared a regional Avian Influenza Prevention Zone (AIPZ) in Norfolk, Suffolk and parts of Essex.

This means there is now a legal requirement for all bird keepers in our districts, and further afield, to implement enhanced biosecurity measures to help protect their flocks.
