I have often wondered why natural bogs are dangerous.
Now I know, I just filled my artificial bog and the peat initially forms a crust which 'floats'. The crust isnt as dense as water so an animal would sink into it before reaching bouyant water. There is enough water in the crust to drown in.
I am hoping it will settle somewhat, will it??????? I have to buy more peat, I have actually covered the surface with a net so if anything does walk out on to the bog it will have at least a fair chance of finding purchase.
Some photos to follow when I remember where I left the camera.
