Bird Flu :: Migrating Siberian birds under suspicion

Brent geese are returning to estuaries and harbours along the East and South coasts. They have flown here from Siberia, so they are under suspicion of carrying bird flu, but there is no serious evidence that they might bring it with them — The Times.

These Siberian birds are of the dark-bellied race of brent geese. There is also a pale- bellied race that migrates from Canada and Greenland, and spends the winter in Ireland.
