Avian influenza confirmed in Lancashire

A case of highly pathogenic (HPAI H5N8) avian influenza has been confirmed in two captive peregrine falcons on a non-commercial, non-poultry premises near Skelmersdale, West Lancashire.

Following a risk assessment, APHA has declared that no disease control zones have been put in place surrounding this non-commercial, non-poultry premises.

Eighteen cases of HPAI H5N8 have now been identified in poultry and other captive birds in England. A housing order for poultry and captive birds introduced by Defra to control the spread of the disease expired on 31 March, although bird keepers in England are still required by law to comply with biosecurity measures.

Avian influenza housing measures to lift March 31

Compulsory housing measures for poultry and captive birds, introduced in December to prevent the spread of avian influenza, are set to be lifted from 31, March 2021 the UK's chief veterinary officers have confirmed.

The announcement comes after the Animal and Heath Plant Agency (APHA) reduced the risk of avian influenza in the UK to medium. The Avian Influenza Prevention Zone and mandatory biosecurity measures will, however, remain in place.

Bird keepers are encouraged to use the coming weeks to prepare outdoor areas for the release of their birds. A joint statement from the UK's chief veterinary officers read: "This will be welcome news for poultry keepers across the country who have put great effort into keeping their flocks safe this winter."
