A bird flu prevention zone has been declared across the whole England. This means it is a legal requirement for all bird keepers to follow strict biosecurity measures.
Whether you keep just a few birds or thousands, you are now legally required to meet enhanced biosecurity requirements and this is in your interests to do, to protect your birds from this highly infectious virus.
The prevention zone means bird keepers across the country must:
Ensure the areas where birds are kept are unattractive to wild birds, for example by netting ponds, and by removing wild bird food sources;
Feed and water your birds in enclosed areas to discourage wild birds;
Minimise movement in and out of bird enclosures;
Clean and disinfect footwear and keep areas where birds live clean and tidy;
Reduce any existing contamination by cleansing and disinfecting concrete areas, and fencing off wet or boggy areas.
The prevention zone will be in place until further notice and will be kept under regular review as part of our work to monitor the threat of bird flu.
Poultry keepers and members of the public should report dead wild birds to the Defra helpline on 03459 33 55 77 and keepers should report suspicion of disease to APHA on 03000 200 301. Keepers should familiarise themselves with our avian flu advice. Further advice can be found at:-

This wonderful open space is available for all villagers to enjoy. At the moment we are in the long process of making the site more attractive both for residents and for wildlife. The Friends of Studley Common Nature Reserve meet once a month on the 2nd Sunday to work on aspects which will improve the Reserve. The entrance is off St Judes Avenue by the start of the public right of way.
At the moment there is still a good range of flora and fauna to be seen and our aim is to make sure that this improves over the years.
If you would like to help in any way please e-mail Robin Jarman at email@example.com. Let us make this space a real asset to our village.
