Bird Flu

Post by Nockya »

Bird flu must be bad at the moment because I got a letter from the Department of Environment and Rural Affairs explaining what is happening.
It is a low risk to humans but no bird is safe.
So, whether you keep birds or see dead birds in the garden, take action by visiting their website.

It looks like it is the poor birds might have a bad summer this year.

I filed that letter in the bin but I do enjoy watching the birds in my garden.

Those bird flu letters are a scam, so someone says.

If they're not asking for money, how is it a scam?

I was thinking that but it could be data harvesting.
I am far roo busy these days trying to make a living that I threw my letter away otherwise I would have taken a second look.

Some are asking people with pigeons and ducks for money in exchange for medication.
