Grid Ref TG219239
Appeared 29th July (this photograph 25th August). Wheat. Clockwise. Diameter 21'5" N/S, 20'10" E/W.
Grid Ref TG221238
Appeared 29th July (this photograph 25th August). Wheat. Clockwise. Diameter 20'3" N/S, 20'3" E/W.
NOTES: Some damage evident in circle A, which had a track to it from the road on the west side of the field and exit damage on the east side, leading to the tramline. This damage was not evident when I first saw the circles and checked round the field's perimeter on 29th July. Circle B, south of Circle A in the same field, had no obvious signs of previous entry. There were two holes (c. 2" diameter) in the centre of circle A, but they were irregular and looked like they were made by animals/subsidence, as opposed to sticks/poles. There was a shallow lump like a molehill near the centre of circle B. Both circles contained single standing stalks.
STRATTON STRAWLESS (1)
Grid Ref TG231208
Photographed 14th August. Wheat. Clockwise. Diameter 18'8" N/S, 18'9" E/W. ('Defect' furthest from camera is wind damage.)
Originally noticed in first week of August, but appeared to be one of a line of patches of wind damage close to edge of field behind hedge. Closer inspection revealed it to be a circle after all. Neat and precise lay, with no sign of previous visitation.
STRATTON STRAWLESS (2)
Grid Ref TG226206
Photographed 14th August. Wheat. Clockwise. Diameter 22'7" N/S, 23' E/W.
As with Stratton Strawless (1), originally spotted in first week of August, but presumed to be wind damage (other patches nearby definitely the latter): a few hundred yards from road on far side of field, thus very difficult to notice. Lay not as neat as in (1), but ground here very lumpy.
Grid Ref TG295026
Formed July? Wheat. Clockwise. Diameter c.20'.
Although seen in August, circle appeared to be at least a month old, judging by the difference between the straight heads of the flattened stalks and the curled heads of the standing crop, as well as the size of the potatoe plants in field.
