Chichester Harbour Conservancy has raised the issue of avian flu and reported that some 20 swans have already succumbed to it within the Harbour. The dead birds need to be removed as soon as possible to stop it spreading as carcasses can be eaten by other birds or mammals. If there are any cases reported could you advise residents to please contact the Environmental Health Department at Chichester District Council who will be able to deal with the collection and disposal of the carcasses. A report of an incident can be made at Report a dead animal: Chichester District Council or email Alison Stevens, Divisional Manager Environmental and Health Protection at firstname.lastname@example.org.
