Lemming populations go through a boom and bust cycle.  We saw lots of them in 2011, but numbers were low over the past couple of summers.  It looks like they are experiencing a boom again.  That  usually leads to a corresponding boom in the predatory animals and birds that rely on the lemmings for food.
