Confusion Reigns as Minister puts Foot in Mouth…

23rd March 2001 So what are we to do? Can we bird, should we be rushing off to B&Bs whilst birding to help the rural economy or staying at home to help stop the infection spreading? Even the minister today was getting confused - he didn't seem to know whether culls were to be extended to anywhere within 2klms of an outbreak?

The best advice we can give is listen to your local radio and visit your local birding organisations website where they are all trying hard to give good advice.In the meantime an announcement has been made postponing this year's Bird Race until the Autumn.So watch this space… unless, of course, you can tell me what's going on!
