january is a time of new beginnings…

…and it seems fitting, therefore, that after 24 years as editor-in-chief of Country Living, as a new decade begins, I am passing on the baton to the next guardian of this wonderful magazine. When I was a child, growing up in Belfast, I decided, at the age of 12, that my dream job would be to work for a glossy magazine. I feel so fortunate to have realised that dream and to have been at Country Living for almost a quarter of a century. I have loved every minute of it. In the ensuing years, I have, like all of us, seen many changes, both personal and in the world around me. I like to think that throughout all the ups and downs, Country Living has remained a constant, bringing…

Back from the brink… the bittern TWO DECADES AGO, THE BITTERN WAS ALMOST EXTINCT BUT, THANKS TO TWO WETLAND RESTORATION PROJECTS, THERE ARE NOW NEARLY 200 ACROSS THE UK. IT’S KNOWN FOR ITS DISTINCTIVE ‘BOOM’ (A MALE’S MATING CALL CAN TRAVEL UP TO THREE MILES), SO THERE’S MORE CHANCE OF HEARING ONE OF THESE ELUSIVE BIRDS THAN SEEING ONE. HEAD TO THE REEDBEDS OF MINSMERE IN SUFFOLK OR LEIGHTON MOSS IN LANCASHIRE FOR THE BEST CHANCE OF A GLIMPSE. FOR MORE, SEE RSPB.ORG.UK. 5 OF THE BEST British sparkling wines Forget France or Italy: ring in the New Year with a glass of wine made with home-grown grapes HATTINGLEY VALLEY BRUT ROSÉ Created at an eco-friendly winery in Hampshire (hattingleyvalley.com).

going greener

BRAIN WAVE If you’re decluttering your wardrobe this winter, listen up: around 380 tonnes of old wetsuits end up in landfill every year in the UK. Many are hard to recycle because they are made of petroleum-based neoprene, which is non-biodegradable. But Finisterre, an outdoor clothing brand based in St Agnes, Cornwall, is determined to make them eco-friendly. It already uses Yulex, a biodegradable rubber, and has now made a prototype of the world’s first completely recyclable suit, which it hopes to eventually put into production. Meanwhile, it is offering discounts on new wetsuits for anyone wanting to trade in their old one. For more information, visit finisterre.com. Did you know? Many carnivorous plants are native to Britain and are under threat. The great sundew (Drosera anglica, right) has long red tentacles that…

the good life in the country

AUTHOR AND JOURNALIST Sally Coulthard January is such a useful month, and I can hardly imagine living in a country where there are no seasons. I relish this quiet, dormant time when I can sit back, take stock and prepare for the smallholding year ahead. Spring and summer often feel slightly out of control – it can be difficult to keep on top of how quickly things grow – whereas January is a blessing in disguise, a much-needed pause in proceedings. This year, I’ve taken the opportunity to create a new vegetable bed – big enough to grow green beans – but I promised myself that, if I were going to do it, I’d learn how to make hazel hurdles and willow obelisks so I didn’t have to rely on plastic…
