Never say never - yes I'm back on the board!!!!!!

Just wondering out loud - as Cookham is in a 'proposed higher risk' area for bird flu right now (I checked Defra's website) will this impose any delay on the removal of the buildings as presumably the chickens cannot be moved due to the current restrictions?

And no, I am not trying to slow the process of ridding Cookham of this carbuncle. I can't wait to see the back of this venture, just hope that the container will follow suit and those not at all temporary wooden sheds as well.

While we're on the subject of bird flu/movement restrictions etc., the biosecurity at the site seems to leave a lot to be desired in terms of wheel and foot baths, not to mention any Tom, Dick or Harriet being able to drive in - as observed when the trucks delivering the hardstanding arrived and recently seen members of the public arriving to make purchases. Surely this can't be right?

This solves one problem, but opens the door to the next problem. Mr Driver still owns the land and if he can't have chickens he'll have something else and God only know's what it might be. I still recall when he brought the pig arcs on site, so will we now see more appear?

Nothing seems to be happening, he's not even bothered to fix back the green mesh that the wind has torn from the fence.  

As to pigs, if it's the smell you're worrying about - have you had a whiff from that big chicken house? It really stinks, what condition the poor birds are in I shudder to think, must be a complete hell hole for them. I know they have to be in for now, but surely it must be possible to clean them out and lessen the pong, the ammonia build up in there must be terrible.

Has anyone notified the RSPB about the plight of the chickens?

Interesting, this morning the padlock is missing from the gates, and yet there is nobody there - I hope that's not an invitation to the travellers that are believed by some to have been seen in the vicinity in the past couple of weeks.  Hopefully he's just gone for a quick coffee or something and it's not going to be left unlocked and unattended for too long.

Couldn't see Monty, the sides were still up.

Having said that though, there hasn't been many on the perches or shelves or whatever lately when I've looked across. Other people have said the same too.

I suppose it does make sense for him to sell to travellers if he's after a quick sale. They'll love the fact that it has hard standing and utilities. I really hope that if the unthinkable does happen that the council don't take as long to deal with it as they did at Sherlock Row. I have friend who lives nearby and she said it was unbearable and felt quite unsafe in her own home.

If the traveller community do buy it do they get special development rights?

I shouldn't think so, the field will still be a working flood plain.

Being a flood plain will that make a difference to a traveller community ?? it didn't make difference to our chicken farmer

Indeed, and even if they stay for two or three months at a time what can we do as you can't enforce on people who might be there sporadically!
