Welcome to CommonByNature. Managed by nature writer and aspiring wildlife conservationist James Common, this blog focuses on the nature of Britain, her wildlife, and the many problems faced by the species with whom we share our diverse and intriguing island. Equal parts journal and reflective log, here you will find trip reports and ecological musings – derived from James’s wanderings in the wider countryside – but also opinion on myriad topics including conservation, ecology, media and youth engagement. All of this can be found on his blog, here.

James also writes regular posts for Northumberland Wildlife Trust (found here) and as the project’s founder, manages the daily running of New Nature – the youth nature magazine. You can stay up to date with James on both Twitter and LinkedIn.
