Hi, James Common here. I am a naturalist, conservationist and nature writer from North-East England. Currently, I work as a Communications Officer for the Natural History Society of Northumbria; splitting my free time between New Nature Magazine, conservation volunteering, environmental writing and, of course, indulging my passion for wildlife, in the North East and beyond. You can contact me here.
I launched Common By Nature back in 2011 as a place to express my interest in the natural world, explore topics that interest me on a personal level and, more importantly, to enthuse others with regards to the world around us. To that end, I try to keep my content as diverse as possible: posting news, factual articles, nature writing, trip reports and the occasional opinion piece – essentially anything that tickles my fancy, inspired by time in ‘the field’.
