All the Oil-Seed-Rape (OSR) plants examined (between stride-widths of largely un-damaged crop) on day two were crushed and/or broken down in violent fashion – with many stems detached from ground completely. The primary crush / damage patches occur around every two feet or so within the circle. In those areas all stems are broken / crushed. The gaps between those impact areas were stepped over with no impact – so aside from a few broken tops where board brushed over them most of those plants are un-damaged.
All characteristics on ground suggest this is an average/below average hoax attempt and therefore of no practical significance when considering the ‘real’ circles phenomenon. Condition of laid plants suggests the circle has been there for around 2/3 days prior to report date.
