DAERA Dead Wild Bird Online Reporting Tool

DAERA collects some dead wild birds for Avian Influenza (AI) surveillance purposes. This helps us understand if and when the virus is present in Northern Ireland, and when calculating which areas are most at risk.

Before you start

This Wild Bird Reporting tool covers Northern Ireland only.  To report a dead wild bird in mainland UK please use the Report dead wild birds service on GOV.UK.
