Yes, please participate to protect our birds! You will be asked to dip your feet in the disinfectant foot bath or mat, buggy wheels will need wheeled over the mat.
Bird keepers - DO NOT wear boots or clothing you wear to tend to Poultry or waterfowl if you are visiting the Park ensure you have clean boots and clothing free of any bird faeces. This is to protect animal health, Avian Influenza is considered very low or nil risk to humans unless you are working with and handling infected birds. All our birds are currently healthy.
Please DO NOT come to the Park if you have been tending to sick birds or have a suspected or confirmed case of Avian influenza on your property.
What should I do if I see a dead wild bird in the Park? -
A single dead wild bird does not necessarily mean it has died of Avian flu however you should not touch or go near it and contact a member of staff immediately who will deal with it. In the Park we have many wild ducks, Moorhens and Herons.
