BASC updates Avian Influenza advice

BASC is advising members that an Avian Influenza Prevention Zone has been implemented across Great Britain.

Shooting is not restricted as part of the conditions associated with this Prevention Zone.

Neither is shooting directly impacted by the implementation of 3km and 10km control zones at sites where Avian Influenza is currently identified; two sites in England, one of which is in Alcester, Bidford, Worcestershire, and the other in Droitwich, Worcestershire, in addition to Wrexham in Wales and Angus in Scotland.

But BASC is urging members to be vigilant and aware of the symptoms of the disease and to follow the latest biosecurity advice and any measures required in the zones.

BASC will continue to provide updates on a dedicated Avian Influenza hub here.
