Near Portsoy, Aberdeenshire 

On the 8th August 2023 a case of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) H5N1 was announced in pheasants at a game farm near Portsoy, Aberdeenshire. To stop the spread of disease a 3 km Protection Zone (PZ) and 10 km Surveillance Zone (SZ) has been put in place and the birds will be humanely culled. It is notable that both of these cases are on the coast reflecting the risk that sea birds present to poultry farmers and keepers.
