Bird flu was found at a duck farm on Leidijk in Kamperveen on Tuesday morning, spokesperson Hennie de Haan of the Dutch poultry farmers' union NVP confirmed. "This is horrible news. We were just hoping to be past it", De Haan said to De Stentor.

"I got the news this morning. Usually this is the period that the wild birds fly away and that the avian influenza risk therefor leaves. That is why this news hit so hard", De Haan said to the newspaper. It looks like highly pathogenic variant of the virus, which is very bad for the animals. "But that has not been confirmed yet."

There is no sign of bird flu on a chicken farm in Biddinghuizen, Felvoland, the Dutch food and consumer product safety authority NVWA announced on Monday. Some 21 thousand chickens on the farm were preventatively killed last week after bird flu was found at a nearby meat duck business, the Telegraaf reports.

The NVWA checked a total of nine farms in the area, but found no sign of bird flu. The bird flu found at the duck farm was the infectious variant H5N8.
