As many of you will know, I have been rather busy of late undertaking another field season in the Scottish Highlands. Due to this, my blogging efforts have been rather lax of late. It is however, both humbling and rather delightful to see so many people continuing to read my various wildlife-related bits and pieces. I feel 2016 has finally seen me advancing more progressively towards a career in environmental journalism/nature writing and, though I still have a long way to go, I am feeling a little more optimistic. As I am now blessed with an internet connection once more, I thought I would share a quick list of the other places where anyone interested can keep up to date with my antics and various waffling:

  1. Wildlife Articles – I currently write for, and manage the social media for the popular environmental-blogging platform.
  2. Conservation Job – I currently hold a column on the Conservation Job careers portal, covering topical issues in a literature review format.
  3. Wilder – I recently took on the social media operations for Wilder, a new activism organisation aiming to bolster wildlife conservation in the UK. Early days but watch this space for future updates.
  4. Facebook – A new Facebook page where I intend to share blog updates for the forseeable future.
  5. Local Patch Reporters – I will be sharing my local patch based posts on the BBC Wildlife Forum, my thread here has already hit 25,000 views (yikes).
  6. Twitter and LinkedIN – You can, of course, follow me here too should you wish to.
  7. In Print – Two recent forays into the realm of “real writing” include a piece in ‘Summer – an anthology for the changing seasons’, by the wonderful Melissa Harrison and a factual article centered on Willow Tits, in the The Harrier.

  1. Hi James, you stated, “I feel 2016 has finally seen me advancing more progressively towards a career in environmental journalism/nature writing and, though I still have a long way to go, I am feeling a little more optimistic.” I state myself that you perhaps simply needed that kick up the backside, which we all require every so often. Keep Blogging and keep writing, I personally need more practice time on both these of aspects.

    Best Wishes

    • Thanks Tony – kind words, as ever. I do hope that I can advance further in the future, I am foremost a conservationist but the more I think about, the more the journalism side appeals. I’m even contemplating attempting to conjure up a book haha.
