Bird Flu


BBC News: Bird flu confirmed at Yorkshire duck farm

DEFRA statement: Avian flu (bird flu) outbreak in duck breeding farm in Yorkshire

The site of the farm is along the track from Lowthorpe to Nafferton. There are duck farms at Kelk also. Fortunately it sounds under control and not a threat to wild birds.
