@Shatner - I can provide you with dates - they are pretty consistent among my sites.
Around last week of Feb we saw a spike in traffic - corresponding to Panda 1 rollout - up until then we had seen consistent regular growth in traffic for weeks previous. Then mid Mar we saw a second spike which, from my research, corresponds to panda 2 depending on who you listen to.
in the second week of april we got hit by panda 2.1 which dropped us below pre-panda 1 levels. this is also when our bounce rate skyrocketed form 25 to 80%
We did see a bump up in mid June - when panda 2.2 came out and on sites without the new descriptions the bump only lasted a few days then settled back down, while sites with new descriptions took a bigger upward bump and continued (and still do) to move up. This is also when our bounce rate dropped to 10%
