Just as a sad newsflash . . . I have just heard that a dead Swan found in Scotland is believed to have died from "bird flu". It is yet to be officially confirmed. Seems the UK Government is concerned enough to be holding an immediate COBRA meeting to discuss the way forward.

Very sad indeed as they are very pretty birds. I will have to post some of my attempts at taking pictures of Swans sometime soon. Very cute swan indeed. Nice picture Syd.

I think my mate has got bird flu. He keeps forgetting where he's put things and can't find his handbag/purse. :lol:



On a serious note though ~ I hope not , the implications are enourmous. They've gotta find a cure pretty damn quick.

Bad news. Tests have confirmed it was the deadly H5N1 virus. This has serious implications for our bird life here.



"Scotland's Chief Veterinary Officer Charles Milne, announcing confirmation of H5N1, said a surveillance zone was being extended to 965 sq miles (2,500 sq km).

The zone contained 175 registered premises, with in total 3.1 million poultry.
About 48 were free-range premises with 260,000 birds.
A total of 14 cases of birds are being checked for bird flu from Scotland including 12 swans and two other species."
