The Avian Influenza Prevention Zone requiring compulsory enhanced bio-security measures and ban on poultry gatherings was lifted from midday on 15 May.
However, maintaining a high biosecurity of standard remains an important measure to help reduce the risk of further avian influenza (bird flu) outbreaks. Poultry and captive bird keepers should remain vigilant for any signs of disease in their birds, and seek prompt advice from their vet if they have any concerns.
All poultry keepers are still encouraged to register their birds on the GB Poultry register so they can be contacted quickly if there is a disease outbreak in their area. This is a legal requirement for keepers of more than 50 birds and highly recommended for all keepers.
