Possible Bird Flu in Gloucester

Apparently, 3 gulls ahve been found dead on a boating lake in Gloucester. They've been sent off to DEFRA for tests. The dead swan found in Scotland is an english breed apparently, this means that there are definitely other birds with bird flu in the UK (migratory birds)... Will be interesting to see the reactions of the popular press...already on some forums people are taking this very seriously. As yet, the H5N1 strain cannot be passed from human to human. The only humans to have died are those in very close (and prolonged) contact with poultry. If H5N1 mutates, then we have problems... Interestingly, I own an AIS site about Bird Flu. Doing OK too! The more bad news about Bird Flu, the more visitors it gets!

Did you know that maybe, sometime, possibly, that some time in the next 50 years there is a chance, that there might be a pandemic.

I'll take my chances, but it does make great news. :)

Gary,

When I saw your post I was going to make a comment about how it might have made a good AIS topic, especially if someone was on the ball enough to get the site online a few months ago.. no surprises you're one step ahead of the game as usual :)

Yep, making such sites (ongoing news stories) is quite easy and if you can get them into Google it is simple to make a nice amount each day.

I first put the site online last September, so it's had a nice long time to bed in :)

Out of interest, what kind of adverts are displaying on your bird flu site? Do they pay well?

Bird Flu Masks => as seen.

Payouts are not great, but that's not really of concern to me (I don't build sites to get most adsense income)...

Those pesky 'gulls have probably just been down the docks and tasted the water from the canal!
