Columbus Weekend Monarchs

Just a quick update:  Numbers were high last week with the highest census count in the 300's.  Over the last few days monarchs have been flying over the bay back to mainland and the census counts have been below a 80.  This morning monarchs were scare BUT things are picking up again! All along HARVARD Ave on Cape May Point you can see them swirling in the air as temperatures rise into the 70s today.  Noon census count is just shy of 100,  with West to North West winds and predicted to be so all day.  If you are thinking of coming down to Cape May, now is a good time as the weather is forecasted to turn to showers wednesday and thursday.
