When one takes into account the information in the Table and the serologic evidence of antibodies against SINV, WNV, Usutu virus, and Tahyna virus in sera of migrant and resident UK birds, the likelihood is high that mosquitoborne arboviruses, particularly those associated with ornithophilic mosquitoes, such as Culex spp., circulate, albeit harmlessly, in the United Kingdom.
