  • Ben Hussey and Natalie Bourchier are joined by guests from their Bittles Brook Farm glamping site in Motcombe to take part in a pond dip on the farm. They find many exciting species.

  • From her Wardour smallholding, Mary Myers gets a lesson in bird fat ball making from her neighbour and head shepherd.
