Only the close-minded have certainty. I cannot approach the crop circles with a closed mind. The delight in the crop circles is in the not knowing.
About this website
After more than twenty years of focussed involvement with the crop circles I am delighted to confess that I do not know what is going on here. I have many ideas, hypotheses and speculations but I realise (and perhaps this is the charm of this phenomenon) that they are all hollow! Anyone who claims “to know”, anyone who professes “certainties”, is either a fool or a liar. This, I suppose, is as clear a statement of my position as is possible.Read More Register for our Newsletter

In his book, The Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell suggested that 10,000 hours of commitment and practice is necessary in any field to produce, if not mastery or expertise, then at least competence. He referred, among others, to musicians and athletes but did not mention crop circle students!

Looking back over the crop circle years I realise that what has depressed me most (even more than the hollow claims of the man-made fundamentalists) is the way so many approach a circle with their minds switched off, their tongues ready to wag and – above all – their eyes closed. The Alton Barnes Rabbit of 14th July 2015  proves my point. This unique little formation showed a stylised, almost cartoon-like, bunny rabbit placed within a circular frame.

To my delight I found that the 2015 season had kicked off on 9th April, with a crop circle in the magic field at Barbury Castle. Images can be found on the Crop Circle Connector but, for personal reasons I am unable to include one here. I believe my survey (1) is accurate. The first formation of each season is greeted with great excitement and this one was remarkable in several respects. First, it arrived in green Oilseed Rape. I could be mistaken, but I do not recall a circle appearing before the crop had ripened to produce its golden flowers. Second, it landed in virtually the precise location of the 2008 Pi formation, falling, as did its predecessor, across the field’s bridle path, shown here in green. This is an exceptional occurrence.
