Enjoy a chapter from a classic of countryside writing in episode 3 of season 5 of the BBC Countryfile Magazine podcast
Settle down for a beautiful reading from The Amateur Poacher by Richard Jefferies and go back in time to the Wiltshire downs of the late 19th century.
Follow the life of an almost forgotten countryside character, the moucher, a gentle rogue roaming the byways of the countryside finding a living and communing with nature. A total delight – with a backdrop of the dusk chorus.
The podcast is available on Acast, iTunes, Apple Podcasts and most major podcast apps
