The team also explore a Napoleonic fort, a wild estuary in Snowdonia, the Canals of Manchester and enjoy wild autumn walks across the country as the season advances.

BBC Countryfile Magazine’s Editor Fergus Collins adds, “These ‘plodcasts’, as we call them, offer magical and thought-provoking wild experiences at a time when we all need escape into beautiful landscapes where we can find peace, space and a bit of magic. Listen to farmers, conservationists, poets and writers – as well as birdsong and the enticing soundscapes of nature – and be transported every week into the countryside you love”.
