Dear All,

The proposed rodent control program on Lord Howe Is. by broadcasting brodiafacoum baits by helicopter seems to be causing a bit of an upset. See Apparently the Lord Howe Woodhen population is to be rounded up , and removed from the island as they are attracted to the proposed baits.

An interesting exercise in theory, but potentially fraught with opportunities for Murphy to do his worst. I hope when they round up the Woodhens, they remove them in several shipments.
