A talk by Kevin Wood produced using the research data he gathered during his Ph.D on the impacts of swan grazing and also assessments of how effective various control measures are.

We attempted transplanting ranunculus ..... the very next day 2 geese arrived and scoffed the lot.

Used to have Ranunculus in my pond, it liked the flow but got way out of hand growing up to 10ft even with regular cutting. When planting cut tops down to 6" and anchor well, gives it a chance to establish roots and is less obvious to water birds, takes a year or two to really get going.
