Please see attached update on the situation with Avian Influenza
The most recent outbreaks or events include:
Although the risk to Ireland from avian influenza is now low due to the departure of wild migratory waterfowl and increased environmental temperatures and sunlight hours, flock owners including owners of backyard poultry are still advised to remain vigilant and implement biosecurity measures – in particular by feeding birds indoors or under cover. Specific biosecurity advice can be found here: https://www.agriculture.gov.ie/avian_influenza/biosecurityadvice/
Flock owners are also reminded to update their flock registration details. On-line registration is now possible.
