Crop fields north of Bawburgh
Note the group of military-looking huts in the distance. They are not military-related but part of a poultry farm, formerly owned by Mr Stephen Vincent of Wramplingham Hall > Link.

Geese are being kept at this farm and they can usually be seen from a distance foraging in the adjacent fields. Due to an outbreak of avian flue in February 2017 at Bridge Farm in Redgrave near Diss, Suffolk, on one of the farms owned by poultry producer Banham Poultry (23,000 birds had to be culled), all poultry in what is deemed to be a Higher Risk Area must currently be kept indoors or in fenced runs covered by netting.

Avian influenza is a disease affecting birds and the H5N8 strain has been found in the UK in both farmed and wild birds since December 2016. Public Health England advises that the risk to public health is very low.
