Sadly 4 dead Swans were found at Hosehill recently. BBOWT and DEFRA have been advised due to the current national outbreak of Avian
flu strain H5N1. This strain can be contracted by humans so if you come across dead birds don't touch them!
Any sightings of multiple dead wild birds should be reported to DEFRA on 03459 335577.
