Looks like the migration season is winding down, thank goodness!
Thank you, Merav, for another year of hard work & dedication to the cause.

yes - I just sent out a similar message to the team. It's almost over, but what a season!

Do you have any ideas about why the count was so very high compared to previous years? It's so puzzling and heart-breaking.

This year has been so different than previous years, both in the total number, but also in the weekly counts. Every time we had very high numbers, and we wanted to switch to twice a week, the week after the numbers were very low. It was unpredictable. So no, I don't know what was going on.
