A dead Red Kite was found recently in a paddock in Appleshaw, and DEFRA has now confirmed that it died of avian flu, which is transmissible to humans.

Public Health England’s advice is not to pick up any dead birds but to get in touch with DEFRA if you come across a dead bird of prey, gull, or waterbird. The helpline number is 03459 335577.
