Excessive downloads in analytics

Does anyone know how to track where downloads are coming from. All of a sudden 3 episodes ago I am suddenly getting several hundred downloads per day. When I upload a new episode the downloads move to that one, and stop on the previous one. I am concerned it’s a DoS attempt or a rogue bot somewhere.

Any ideas how I can check and/or block - it happened once before about six months ago but not as bad - as per attached screen shot
