Nice bog! And lucky cephalotus! Did you do anything special for it over winter, apart from the fleece cover? Did you get a good freeze? Suprised cephalotus made it...

Just the fleece. I think they're from south coast Australia which I figure has similar temperatures to UK (prob totally wrong). So I didn't give them special treatment.

2nd the point about blackbirds, especially when nesting or even worse when they have fledged young in tow!  The mess they make digging through any moss spells disaster for all but the biggest CPs.  Have fishing line strung up all over the pond (herons....) but the blackbirds still sneak in round the edge to have a good rummage round the CPs.  I've laid plastic netting, the heavy brown ridged stuff cut into strips, round on the moss (it soon gets overgrown and out of sight) which seems to minimise the damage as it stops them digging deep.
