Caption: Cellardyke, Fife, Scotland, aerial image. A dead swan found on 29th March 2006 in Cellardyke harbour (centre right) was found to have died of avian influenza (bird flu). On the 6th April it was confirmed that it died from the deadly H5N1 strain of the virus. It is the first case of H5N1 in a wild bird in the UK. As a precaution a 3 kilometre protection zone has been set up around Cellardyke to prevent the movement of poultry. The disease is invariably fatal in poultry. It can be spread to humans by direct contact or the inhalation of the faeces of affected birds, and can be fatal in humans. However, as of April 2006 no human to human transmission has been recorded.
