Chris Packham's Nature Handbook

This book is one of the best explainers out there. This book is written by an expert and put into easy but detailed sections. One of the best parts is that it does not, as many wildlife books do, just look at all things big and powerful. It looks at the small, the things that matter, and how they interlock to create the full picture of this fantastic earth. It explores different habitats and ...

Bumphead Parrotfish....

Interesting piece in the BBC Nature website:

I Bought A Rainforest

I caught up with the first episode of wildlife photographer Charlie Hamilton James's new series last night, and it's fantastic - very thought-provoking, and unusually self-critical too. What did the rest of you think?
