Avian influenza has been detected in wild birds in Northern Ireland.

The public should avoid contact with wild birds including their feathers and waste.

  • Do not pick up or touch sick, dying or dead wild birds.
  • Avoid contact with surfaces contaminated with bird faeces.

Please keep to the footpath and keep dogs on a lead.

If you find a dead bird, do not touch or move it.  Report it to the landowner.
