GOV.UK Avian Flu Guidance
From 7th November 2022, it will be a legal requirement for all bird keepers to keep their birds housed and to follow stringent biosecurity measures to protect their flocks. This applies whether keepers have commercial flocks, or just a few birds in a backyard. Link to the housing order:- Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs [Logo] (publishing.service.gov.uk)
The decision was made by the UK’s Chief Veterinary Officer, as the UK continues to face its largest ever outbreak of avian influenza – with over 70 cases since the start of October.
You should be vigilant for any signs of disease in your birds and seek prompt advice from your vet if you have any concerns.
You can help protect your birds and prevent avian flu by maintaining good biosecurity on your premises, including:
Full details of what is required can be found on the government website - www.gov.uk/bird-flu
You can also find a self-assessment checklist at the above link to help you put the measures in place, as well as more information about the virus.
You can keep up to date with any future changes by regularly visiting the avian influenza section on the government website, and by registering for email or text alerts - www.gov.uk/guidance/apha-alert-subscription-service
The risk to public health from the virus is very low, however it is important that people don’t pick up sick or dead birds.
You should call the Defra helpline on 03459 33 55 77 if you find:
The Food Standards Agency advice remains unchanged, that avian influenza poses a very low food safety risk for UK consumers. Properly cooked poultry and poultry products, including eggs, are safe to eat.

The Maritime Manager has confirmed that a small number of vehicles are issued with permits to park on the beach whilst conducting business related to the harbour. These are the vehicles that will have been seen parked on the sand and will have permission to park in that area.
