While flying yesterday (June 25th) I discovered a simple circle on
the East flank of Woodborough Hill, in wheat -- which I don't think has been reported before. It looked like it was more than a week
old, but well preserved (I did have to erase two walk lines through the crop in my picture).
It's irregular outline is at first glance suspicious, but, hang on -- a nice round circle is the easiest thing in the world to make with a piece of string, even for amateurs (I know, I've tried it!). And, on the other hand, a hallmark of "the original phenomenon" of simple circles is an organic, non-mechanical outline.
