In this paper, we consider a population of animals that moves between different areas according to some Markovian rule. A continuous time capture-recapture sampling technique is used to monitor the distribution of the population between the different areas. Using measure change techniques finite-dimensional filters for the number of animals in each region are derived. Using the EM algorithm the parameters of the model are updated.
