I remember those loosestrife-pulling parties. I think his name was Stuart. It was 1995. And it did work (and they were fun). There were a lot more shorebirds that year and for several years afterwards.

Hi Dennis,
Remember this?
Many years ago when I frequently visited the 'Fill', there was a Scotsman, who organized a group of birders to pull loosestrife around the edges for the shorebirds. We met every Wednesday for a couple of hours to pull.

It worked!. The next year the shorebirds came.
