    tips for anyone handling wild birds: ? Wear protective gloves, preferably vinyl or heavy duty rubber ones that can be disinfected;
    ? Take care to avoid contamination of the face and other exposed areas. If contamination does happen, wash the area thoroughly with soap and water;
    ? Cover all new and existing cuts and grazes with waterproof dressings and gloves before starting work;
    ? Wash hands, nails and forearms following any bird handling and before eating, drinking, smoking, using the telephone, applying make-up or inserting contact lenses.
