Re: Booms better than screeches, Sept. 6 letters.
I am surprised letter-writer L.M. Hornby did not research, before they moved to White Rock, what birds live by the ocean.
Yes, White Rock does have a slight garbage problem due to mother nature. This is caused by the tides; when the tide goes out, the seagulls clean up.
I grew up by Lake Ontario. Seagulls are a part of life and nature’s cleanup crew. Without seagulls, the beach would not be as clean as it is.
I am still shaking my head about this one!

The seagulls know something you do not know… but farmers do.
They indicate with their early arrival and large numbers that we are getting a cold winter with a lot of snow!
So, L. M. Hornby, get yourself some long underwear and ear protection.
