Just read this on the BBC news. I just wonder how the virus gets there in the first place? :-)19

Oh dear, yes we get this every year. It arrives with migratory birds in the Autumn. Some years are worse than others and DEFRA says we all have to protect our birds by keeping them enclosed and with a covered roof.
