It is Happening Again

Post by Lincoln » Fri Apr 05, 2019 4:01 pm

There are 100,000, 000's of butterflies passing our apartment. This has been going on for the last two ++ hours. All heading West. Lovely to watch :D This must be the second wave as we had them a couple of weeks ago.

I was out in the country at lunchtime and it was incredible. I thought I saw a lot of butterflies last time, but today they were in even greater numbers (for me, anyway).

Really lovely to witness. I just stood there, and there were constantly butterflies flying past, as you say, east to west.

Yes, there was another large migration from Israel this week! I recorded over 100 per minute this afternoon over my patio area 😃

For the last few evenings around 6pm a few appear and fly around our patio. Don't know why yet. Any answers?

Yes we also have some remainers. They appear to have settled into all the wild flowers in front of us. So it is still a pleasure to watch them and also the Swallows.

We had thousands flying past in Anarit yesterday. A fantastic natural phenomena.
