Back from Nuffield study trip

I came back from my Nuffield Study tour on Tuesday elated with all I had seen and learned in the US, but then saddened to hear that we have H5N1 avian influenza back in the UK. Let us hope that it can be isolated and dealt with quickly. 2007 has been a bad year for animal disease what with foot and mouth, blue tongue, ongoing bovine TB issues and now avian influenza. We will have to watch future developments with avian influenza very closely.
