Ocean Park was confident the discovery on its premises of the body of a wild bird suspected to have died of avian flu and the brutal mainland weather would not affect visitor numbers over Lunar New Year, chief executive Tom Mehrmann said yesterday. The two aviaries in Tai Shue Wan and the Amazing Bird Theatre were closed for 21 days from yesterday as a precaution, but there were more than 88 other attractions for visitors, he said.
