Join Melissa as she gets lost in a tangled wood on the edge of the village. It’s windy, and a robin sings from the understorey, while toadstools are sprouting underfoot. Helen Macdonald joins us from her Suffolk garden; her essay collection, Vesper Flights, is about to be published. ‘Pied Beauty’ is read by the poet Liz Berry.
