Recap on the basic facts (please update as appropriate):
Bird flu is a disease that birds can catch from one another and it can kill them.
People are only at risk if they have very close contact with birds that have bird flu. Chicken farmers for example can catch bird flu, but this is still unusual.
The first case in Britain has been found in a swan in Scotland.
The disease cannot pass from person to person so, at the moment, there is no danger of its spreading very fast in what is called an epidemic.
If you see a dead bird, you should not touch it but tell an adult who can arrange for the bird to be checked to see if it has bird flu.
It is perfectly safe to eat cooked eggs and meat such as chicken and turkey – only raw bird meat (poultry) should be avoided, and you should always wash your hands thoroughly after touching raw meat, anyway.
