James has been fascinated by wildlife since he was a boy and now writes on all aspects of the natural world for a range of publications. He travels several weeks each year in search of wildlife, from the Andes of Ecuador and the savannah of East Africa to the teak forests of central India and the traditional farming landscapes of the Balkans. He enjoys discovering all types of wildlife and plants but, if pushed, would probably admit to getting most excited about birds, reptiles and butterflies.
