Government has come together with countryside and shooting organisations to issue important information about Avian Influenza to everyone involved with gamebirds.

The information, endorsed by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) and the Scottish, Welsh and Northern Ireland governments, has been collated by seven leading countryside and shooting organisations (BASC, CA, CLA, GFA, GWCT, NGO and SGA).

Glynn Evans, BASC’s head of game and deer management, said: “We would urge everyone involved in gamebird management to read and follow this hugely important advice. BASC is pleased to have worked with government and partner organisations to put the information together.”
