Gaucho birding in Argentina: From the Andes to the Atlantic 
James draws on three years of living and birding in Argentina to guide you around the entire of South America's second-biggest country. From the Andes to the Atlantic Ocean, and from the mighty, jungle-shrouded waterfalls of Iguazú to the remoteness of Tierra del Fuego, we voyage in search of the mythical Hooded Grebe, swarms of glittering hummingbirds and the gargantuan Greater Rhea - via conservation and an unseemly wild-goose chase.

The best of Britain's summer wildlife

A very popular talk that builds on the success of A Summer of British Wildlife, which won Travel Guidebook of the Year 2016 and was featured on Chris Packham’s BBC Springwatch Unsprung. James selects his favourite subset of 100 suggested fabulous summer days out watching British wildlife. These feature everything from seabird colonies to beachbum beetles, from snorkelling with sharks to orchid odysseys – and span almost the entire country.
