I believe Ian Flemming was something of a birder. The original name James Bond was taken from the author of a ornithological field guide. Flemming's house was called Goldeneye (hence the name of the Bond film).

Yep, the 'original' James Bond was the author of a fieldguide to the birds of the West Indies - I think it's nodded to in one of the films when Bond uses birding as a cover...
