Bird flu link to dying swans investigated


A spate of swan deaths in the UK are reportedly being investigated amid concerns they could be connected to a wave of avian flu from Europe.

The Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs has asked people to report sightings of dead swans after confirming a number of cases of H5N8 in wild birds.

Small outbreaks of H5N8, which has been in evidence among wild bird populations in Europe, have been confirmed in geese and swans in Gloucestershire, Devon and Dorset.
