Dead swan with H5N1 found in Scotland 7 days ago .. but nothing to worry about

The Government continues to tell us that all that can be done is being done  in a timely manner. They have reviewed their procedures and are happy with them ( in spite of the fact it takes 7 days to identify a case ).

Complacency and inefficiency ... Sound like Foot and Mouth to you ?

There is a chicken farmer from Fife on the radio right now who tells us he heard about the outbreak from family phoning him having heard about the swan on the media - rather than being contacted by the relevant Govt agency. Clearly whatever the Scottish version of Defra is - its not able to act in good time.
