First crop circle of summer?
By FWi staff
THE first crop circle of the year has appeared, much to the disgust of farmer David Hues of Silbury Hill, Wiltshire, whose field the pattern has surfaced in.
Mr Hues said there was no mystery involved and that the bizarre design was the work of vandals. His crop of yellow rape seed now bears a 250ft wide pattern of double concentric rings linked by a series of bars.
Mr Hues said this sort of thing may have been funny a few years ago, but farmers have now had enough.
