In our latest lockdown episode, we meet Clare Nasir, the face of Channel 5 weather and a best-selling author. She shares her views on climate change, weather and being wild about the countryside. She also treats us to a tour of Lindow Common near her home in Wilmslow, Cheshire, where she enjoys walking her dog every day.

Clare uses our tree ID app on her walk. Download it free for Android and iPhone for an A-Z tree guide in your pocket.

The nature reserve is special to Clare. Featuring woodland, heathland, peatland and a lake, she admires the small differences in nature every day - something many of us have noticed more during lockdown - as well as the site's important role in capturing carbon and fighting climate change. For Clare, the area is an escape from working at home, a place to slow down and relish every moment.
