Deadly H5N1 bird flu found at fifth site in Poland

WARSAW, Dec 12 (Reuters) - The deadly H5N1 bird flu virus has been found in wild birds at a fifth site in Poland, officials said on Wednesday.

A stork and two buzzards, which died from the virus, were being kept at a wild bird rehabilitation centre near the town of Orneta, northeastern Poland, regional government veterinarian Ludwik Bartoszewicz was quoted as saying on the TVN24 Web site.

Emergency services set up a safety perimeter around the site. The rehabilitation centre is home to several other wild birds, including cranes and swans. Since some of the species are endangered it was unclear if culling would proceed as usual.

Poland has suffered a spate of recent outbreaks. The first was discovered at a turkey farm 80 km (50 miles) northwest of Warsaw earlier this month.

One of the EU's biggest poultry producers, Poland exported 230,000 tonnes of poultry to European markets last year.
