UK - The ban on bird gatherings, shows and pigeon racing has been lifted in some areas of the UK.

Restrictions had been in place since the confirmation of avian influenza in Suffolk on 12 November.

As a precautionary measure, the ban will remain in place within the Restricted, Surveillance and Protection Zones in Suffolk and Norfolk. Birds from those zones will not be able to be taken to gatherings in the rest of the country.

Bird gatherings must take place under the normal biosecurity, notification and record-keeping requirements of a general licence, which can be found on the Defra website by clicking here.
