Avian influenza is a highly infectious disease affecting many species of birds, including commercial, wild and pet birds.
All people that keep poultry and other domestic birds should remain vigilant for signs of the disease and all keepers should maintain a high level of biosecurity to reduce the risk of introducing the disease.
If you find one or more dead swans or wild fowl (ducks and geese), more than 3 dead birds of the same species or more than 5 dead birds of different species, in the same place, please do not contact Clackmannanshire Council. Instead, you should contact the Defra Helpline:
It is essential the DEFRA specialists speak directly with you to obtain as much information as possible to ensure the appropriate response to the call.
Further information for poultry keepers can be found in the Publications and documents section below. In addition the Council will be holding regular briefings to provide up-to-date information directly to local businesses who may be effected by a possible outbreak of avian influenza.
