As of 16 February, the ban on bird gatherings in the non-restricted parts of England has been lifted and gatherings are permitted again under general licence. The ban will remain in place within the entirety of the Restricted Zone, as per the legal requirements until further notice. (likely to be for another couple of weeks).

THE CURRENT SITUATION IS THAT DEFRA IS NOW CLARIFYING THE SITUATION IN THE CONTINENTAL COUNTRIES THAT WE RACE FROM. ONCE APPROVAL HAS BEEN GRANTED FROM FRANCE, BELGIUM ETC DEFRA WILL ISSUE A GENERAL LICENCE FOR RACING FROM THE CONTINENT.

For Northern Ireland
DARD has decided to impose a precautionary ban on the movement of birds from the control areas in Great Britain to attend bird gatherings and pigeon races in Northern Ireland.

The ban on the movement of birds from Great Britain to attend bird gatherings and pigeon races in Northern Ireland has also been lifted.

Jersey
Will accept consignments of live birds, except from restriction zones.
