AI case finder – current and lifted cases of avian influenza

AI (avian influenza) H5N1 has been confirmed in captive birds, poultry and wild birds in England, Wales and Scotland. Our AI case finder allows you to find current and lifted cases of avian influenza at any particular location. It is being updated regularly with information on the latest cases, including the restrictions that apply in the Disease Control Zones around the infected premises.

The AI case finder does not replace official notification of cases from GOV.UK. Please use the APHA's interactive map to see if you are in a Disease Control Zone.

How to use the AI case finder

  • Change the Case status to filter between current and lifted cases. Current cases have disease control zones in place. Lifted cases are those where the zones have been lifted. 
  • Choose which distance you want to search within. The minimum distance you can search within is 15km. 
  • Enter your postcode or a name of a location
  • Press Find cases

The AI case finder is listing all current cases. Lifted cases display for 90 days after the date the disease control zone has been lifted. 

Results are ordered by distance from your entered location.

Housing measures

From 00:01 on Tuesday 18 April 2023, mandatory housing measures were lifted across England and Wales following the latest assessment of the risk level. are due to come into force in all areas of England.

This means that poultry and other captive birds will no longer need to be housed and can be kept outside, unless they are in a protection zone.

Although there is no longer a requirement to house birds from 18 April, biosecurity measures will remain in force across England as infection may still be circulating in the environment for some time.

AIPZ announcements

Defra has introduced a new AIPZ declaration containing biosecurity measures, which came into effect across all areas of England at 00:01 on Tuesday, 18 April 2023. These measures will remain in force until the AIPZ is revoked or amended.

This means that all bird keepers in England must continue to abide by the mandatory biosecurity measures.

The Welsh Government has also introduced a new AIPZ declaration containing biosecurity measures, which came into effect across all areas of Wales at 00:01 on 18 April 2023. These measures will remain in force until further notice.

Risk of avian influenza

The risk levels are currently:

  • Very high for wild birds
  • High for poultry where biosecurity is suboptimal
  • Medium for poultry with stringent biosecurity

More information on the current risk level can be found by visiting: GOV.UK | Avian influenza (bird flu): Risk level.

The latest information on avian influenza in wild birds can be found on: GOV.UK | Avian influenza (bird flu): Wild birds in the UK.

Expert advice

NFU chief poultry adviser Aimee Mahony said:

“The NFU remains in close dialogue with both Defra and the Animal and Plant Health Agency on this issue and we are working to support any members affected by this case of avian influenza. 

“I would urge all of our poultry members to continue to practise enhanced biosecurity at all times and to be vigilant for any signs of disease in their flock. I would also ask members of the public who keep birds such as chickens, geese and ducks to follow Defra’s biosecurity advice. All bird keepers have an important part to play in reducing the risk of avian influenza, not only to their own birds but also to the commercial poultry sector. 

“It is worth reminding people that the risk to public health from the virus is very low and the Food Standards Agency has also made it clear that bird flu poses a very low food safety risk for UK consumers.”

The UK chief veterinary officer Christine Middlemiss said:

“As we move into the higher risk period over winter, bird keepers should pay extra attention to the health of their birds. Anybody who suspects disease should report it to their vet or the APHA immediately. The best way to tackle this disease is for poultry keepers to ensure that they have strong biosecurity measures in place.”

More information

  • Poultry keepers and members of the public should report dead wild birds to the Defra helpline on 03459 33 55 77.
  • Bird keepers should report suspicion of disease in their own birds to APHA on 03000 200 301 (England) or 0300 303 8268 (Wales).
  • Bird keepers should also familiarise themselves with the government’s avian influenza advice.
