The Friedrich-Loeffler-Institute has stated the presence of H5N1 in two swans ond one goose in Nuernberg. There was five dead swans, two ducks and one goose found since last tuesday.
Maybe an interesting point: The Nuernberg silver lake was in the 30's and 40's an excavation for Hitler's gigantic "German stadium", filled with water, after the Second World War, there were debris, agents poisons and other special refuse collected. In waters smelling of putrid eggs, bathing is forbidden.. . Residents said that dead birds are not surprising there.
Seems to me mysterious like Ruegen in 2006. In the last week, when the infection must happen, there was an average temperature of 25 degrees Celsius in Nuernberg, and even tooth fairy birds do not migrating in summertime..
All the best, Werner
PS: According to Karl May and his book "The treasure in the silver lake" (Nuernberg has an "Silbersee", the german translation of silver lake) i made a little fun, related to my special friend Thomas Mettenleiter from FLI:
Titled "The virus in the silver lake";)
