Clare Howcutt-Kelly is a journalist with around 16 years' experience. She loves spending time in the garden – growing her own veg and buying more plants that is necessary. A keen birdwatcher, Clare enjoys encouraging wildlife into her garden and writing about this in a regular column in Birdwatching Magazine. Being outside makes Clare happy and when she can, she likes to get up early and go for a run. Preferably in the direction of cake. Big cakes.
