Please see the message below from David Larkin of Brighton & Hove City Council regarding the outbreak of Avian Flu in the city. The council has updated its webpage now that cases locally have been confirmed as positive for avian flu.
“You may be aware that we have an outbreak of Avian flu in the city which is impacting on our gull population.
The risk of transmission to humans is low but we are following government advice and directions on how dead and sick birds are treated and disposed of.
The most important message is to advise people to stay away from and not touch dead or sick birds and contact the council to remove them in the case of the former and RSPCA in the case of sick birds.
Please see the link to our webpage . The situation is changing so if there are changes we will be updating the site.”
