Sound Escape 79: take time to appreciate the crackle of a camp fire

It's a warm summer's evening and after a tiring day you relax by the crackling campfire. The damp wood from the previous day's storm sizzles from the heat and the popping of twigs fills the peaceful space. You look up at the bat fluttering around plucking insects from the air. With a warm drink in hand you stop and reflect.

BBC Countryfile Magazine's Sound Escapes are a weekly audio postcard from the countryside to help you relax and transport you somewhere beautiful, wherever you happen to be.
