We have confirmed cases of avian flu in the wild bird population at one of our nature reserves (Hosehill Lake) in Berkshire. Whilst the risk of transmission to humans is very low, please take the following precautions when visiting any of our nature reserves and in the wider countryside:

  • Do not touch or pick up any dead or visibly sick birds that you find.
  • Do not touch any droppings.
  • If you find dead wild waterfowl (swans, geese or ducks) or other dead wild birds please report them to the Defra helpline (03459 33 55 77).
  • You can find further information here.
