Paramyxovirus infection in feral pigeons in Liverpool and Birkenhead

, : Paramyxovirus infection in feral pigeons in Liverpool and Birkenhead. State Veterinary Journal 39(114): 53-56

Outbreaks of Newcastle disease, caused by infection with avian paramyxovirus type 1 (PMV- 1), were confirmed in poultry flocks in England and Scotland between February and July 1984. It seemed that disease had been introduced to some of these flocks by feed ingredients, which had been contaminated by infected feral pigeons whilst stored in the Port of Liverpool. PMV-1 infection was confirmed in these feral pigeons in December 1983.
