UK garden birds hit by avian pox virus

Any UK garden bird feeders, be aware!

One thing I noticed - refers to 'mild' symptoms in many birds including wood pigeons. Our observation suggests that it is extremely dangerous for wood pigeons and may be fatal.

Oh no, I saw one of my ferals today with what looked like the beginning of pox lesions. It looks like it's got here too.

Well, the Pigeon Pox variant has always been around, worldwide.

I think what they are highlighting in this report is that there's been exceptionally high rates of Avian Pox amongst birds where it isn't normally significant.
