Dear Animal and Plant Health Agency,

I am writing to make an open government request for all the
information to which I am entitled under the freedom of information act and the environmental information regulations.
In order to assist you with this request, I am outlining my query as specifically as possible.
If however this request is too wide or too unclear, I would be grateful if you could contact me as I understand that under the act, you are required to advise and assist requesters.
Could you please confirm if you have carried put any post mortems on wildfowl from Brookvale Park Birmingham , West Midlands- approximate nat grid reference SP091911 and supply me with the preliminary, supplementary and final reports concerning recent bird deaths .
https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/news/mi...
Can you CONFIRM that these birds died from avian botulism, and was this a "presumptive diagnosis" without carrying out a test for this summer related illness?
I believe these may have been submitted to the Shrewsbury laboratory since December.
I understand that under the act, I should be entitled to a response
within 20 working days. I would be grateful if you could confirm that you have received
this request. I look forward to hearing from you in the near future via the what do they know website address.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Carroll
