I'm starting to read more reports of avian flu outbreaks, and was thinking it might be a wise idea for us to share any reports we come across to help those new and still learning about our wonderful wildlife.
A link from the .GOV.UK pages to peruse: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/avian-influenza-bird-flu
Avian flu case confirmed in swan on Solway Coast
Plus one I posted a while back
More cases of bird flu confirmed in Wales, this time at nature reserve
If it's felt a bad idea, I'll can it here and now.

I’ve had a look by doing a search on the RSPB website and I also tried googling and I can’t see any updates from the RSPB about Avian Flu for quite a long period. What are the RSPB’s latest official line with the latest Avian Flu situation. I might have missed an RSPB news report or a blog about the present situation. If I have missed, sorry! If the RSPB have not said what there present official views are; Perhaps the RSPB actually should say what the present official line/views are at this present time!

I'll let it run, and any reports or information folk come across it can be shared in a centralised location on the forum.
A couple more reports.
Cases were subsequently found in two dead birds at RSPB Ynys-hir, a nature reserve near Machynlleth, Powys, but restrictions there have since been lifted

Very apt, Mike.
