Avian Flu 

Please be aware of an increase in cases of Avian Flu within the local area. Bird flu mainly affects birds, but it can affect humans and other mammals. We ask visiting clubs- 

  • Do not touch or pick up a dead or visibly sick wild bird.
  • Maintain good hand hygiene and wash hands thoroughly and regularly. 
  • Keep dogs on leads at all times.

If you see a dead or visibly sick bird within our grounds, please call Swan Support on 07968 868172 or our Reception Team (Monday to Friday) on 01753 832756.
