    Handy Links

    Have stolen most of these from other people's journals, comments, forum posts etc. All handy and sometimes difficult to remember!! You can alter the URL of these links to your own user ID or taxon numbers to make them applicable to yourself.

    OBSERVATIONS

    My observations (Grid form)
    https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?place_id=any&subview=grid&user_id=nicklambert

    My observations as a heatmap:
    https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/map?user_id=nicklambert#3/2.771/86.889

    Species I have seen in my local government area:
    https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?place_id=18615,49006&subview=grid&user_id=nicklambert&view=species
