Start time

A

s autumn sets in, we may not have the warmest of weather but

there’s no reason not to wrap up and enjoy the great outdoors.

Why not make the most of the natural environment around

us and go looking for wildlife? In this issue, we’ve taken a look

at 10 of the best places around the Flybe network to spot wildlife, often in

stunning surroundings. Whether you’re a keen ornithologist or fancy going

on a whale-watching boat trip or catching sight of a red squirrel, we have

some ideas to get you started!

Elsewhere in this issue, there’s a bit of a back-to-nature theme, with Olly

Davy taking on an extreme wilderness course in Sussex (p55), where he finds

himself facing a choice between hunger and foraging for his own food. It’s

a far cry from the way many of us spend our days, that’s for sure! There’s

also a feature about the Isle of Harris by Adam Duxbury (p49), who went in

search of Harris Tweed and found a serene location full of wild moorlands

and coastal beauty. On p59, we look at ways to enjoy a break in Guernsey,

including taking a walk up on the island’s clifftops or indulging in some tasty

local food as part of Tennerfest.

Our other features include rugby star Sam Warburton talking about his

career and sharing some of his favourite highlights in Cardiff on p16, and

insider insights about Padstow, Paris and London.There’s also a rather fiery

look at the quirky customs of the traditional bonfire societies of Sussex on

p42. Read about how they take the fifth of November very seriously indeed,

with fancy dress and flaming processions!

For now, though, it’s time to sit back, relax and enjoy your flight – and your

copy of
