Near Peterhead, Aberdeenshire

Another case of avian influenza H5N1 was confirmed in Scotland at a premises near Peterhead in Aberdeenshire housing a large number of laying hens. A 3 km Protection Zone and 10 km Surveillance Zone (SZ) were declared, and all the birds will be humanely culled. This once again emphasises the importance of biosecurity standards followed at all times.
