Recording your observations



MynaScan can be used to record information on:
  1. Sightings and numbers - including nesting and roosting sites 
  2. Damage - The damage or problems they are causing
  3. Control activities - Locations where control has been undertaken.

The more information entered into MynaScan the more useful the map will become.
