Just been out to look at mine - buds coming  

They're looking a bit overcrowded - I'd better divide them later in the year

It's been quite chilly here lately - has it been a combination of cold and damp do you think?

Probably over-watering - especially in coolish weather.  Let them dry out and keep them in a greenhouse or on a light windowsill until the weather warms up.  Only water when the compost is dry, then give them plenty and let them dry out again before watering.

Fish thieving magpies!

That's the first time I've heard of that! 

Although we did have magpies deconstruct the edge of our pond earlier in the year taking mud for their nests .........

honeysuckle problem

Don't know about your grub Gertie - I take it this is the first time you've seen it on your honeysuckle?

I think the chilli peppers indicate that it's one of the most active threads.
