Join Melissa on her daily walk through the beautiful Suffolk countryside. It’s the beginning of April and the fields are finally dry after a long, wet winter. In the woods, chiffchaffs are singing, there are buzzards wheeling over the oilseed rape, and the wildflowers sleeping in the village churchyard will soon burst back to life. As we think about what it means to endure, we hear from Andy Beer, author of Every Day Nature: How Noticing Nature can Quietly Change Your Life. This week’s poem is ‘Brockhampton’, written and read by Alison Brackenbury; her selected poems are out now. Please support indie bookshops and order from them online.
