Walmsley Sanctuary: Please note that there will be intermittent disturbance by the warden & team as we attempt to clear up wildfowl that are dying of avian flu. We are trying to bury carcasses onsite and as such there will be some disturbance. My apologies but at present I can see no alternative. We have had 8 dead geese today alone! Thanks Adrian.
