More monarchs at the Point today

There was a noticeable increase in monarchs at Cape May Point today.  Multiple observers noted a steady movement of monarchs down the dunes towards Cape May Point.  Just after noon I counted 36 monarchs passing over the dune in just 3 minutes, and our afternoon census today tallied 62 monarchs.  We don't know if this was the peak or if there might be even more monarchs moving into the Point tomorrow, but we'll be out there watching and counting.
