bringing in birds from europe


Recommended Posts

Here is a link to the Defra site:http://www.defra.gov.uk/animalh/int-trde/imports/iins/birds/a9.htm


you need to tell them (your local office) in advance that your brining in pigeon from Europe. I would have a chat with them before you go. Mine were fine about it.

They do ask where (City) there coming from, if the area has a reported Bird flue then they will tell you not to bring them back.


I don't think that you need a vets certificate, but you will need a recipt / doc as to where the pigeons come from address.


I've been a 2 times to Dortmund (Germany) pigeon show, to buy pigeons.

you need a valid vets cert but it is not much hassle unlike years ago they are not really that bothered i show on the continent a couple of times a year they are more bothered about fags and booze and have been stopped and searched a few times
