It's the end of civilisation

Yes, Asian bird flu is approaching like a Starlinesque embodiment of death and the NHS only has twenty-six doses of Tamiflu, so it looks like the entire UK blogging community is going to be checking out in the next few months.

In the meantime, can someone answer the only question which really matters any more: at what point in the epidemic does it become environmentally acceptable to me to wipe out the three nests of housemartins in the eaves of my house who warble at annoying hours and keep leaving piles of crap outside my garage door? Bring it on.
