About this author

James Lowen has been immersed in all aspects of natural history since he was able to walk, encouraging him to become a fully fledged wildlife writer, editor, guide and photographer. Upon his return to Britain from several years leading wildlife tours in South America and Antarctica, James had an irrepressible desire to renew his relationship with British nature. His books 52 Wildlife Weekends, and the upcoming A Summer of British Wildlife, are the result. Enthused by bringing nature to life for the non-specialist, James’s previous book for Bradt Travel Guides is Pantanal Wildlife: A Visitor’s Guide to Brazil’s Great Wetland. He has also written Antarctic Wildlife: a Visitor’s Guide to the Wildlife of the Beagle Channel, Drake Passage and Antarctic Peninsula. James was a contributing writer on Handbook of Birds of the World and edited Neotropical Birding magazine from 2006 to 2009, and has just joined the British Guild of Travel Writers.
