Bird Flu Watch Zone Lifted

The government has lifted the avian influenza surveillance zone in Jersey.

No further cases of bird flu have been detected in the island after a recent scare.

It follows the death of chickens from a flock in St Martin last month near Archirondel.

Before the restrictions were put in place, Jersey has not seen an island-wide lockdown on flocks since October 2022.

Animal Health and Welfare still advise islanders to keep their birds separated from wild birds wherever possible.
