Following a reduction in risk from avian influenza, all bird gatherings are now permitted to take place in Wales. However, robust biosecurity measures must remain in place at all times. Conditions of the general licence for bird gatherings must be complied with by all organisers and keepers alike.

It is important that keepers continue to proceed with high biosecurity. Remain vigilant and continue to promptly report any suspicion of disease within poultry and wild birds.  

You can find further details in the general licence document.
