Enjoy a magical wander into Horner Wood to discover redstarts, pied flycatchers and wood warblers in the BBC Countryfile Magazine podcast, season 5, episode 6.
Meet acclaimed author, naturalist and broadcaster Tim Dee. At this time of year, the heart of springtime in Britain, Tim would normally be exploring his favourite oakwoods on Exmoor and the astonishing birdlife to be found there but, due to the COVID-19 lockdown, he is having to experience autumn in the southern hemisphere instead.
Here he relives some of his memories by reading a rather magical chapter of his new book, Greenery: Journeys in Springtime.
And don’t forget we have dozens of brilliant escapes into the countryside for you to enjoy in the BBC Countryfile Magazine plodcast
