REPORT: Nancy Talbott, BLT Research Team

DESCRIPTION: Four circles (largest = 7.5m diameter, smallest = 2.5 diameter) and one oval (3.8m x 3.1m); overall length = 15m.  This 8th formation in southern Holland is the second one this year in barley, and occurred during a light rain.  No mud was found on the flattened plants, all of which are laid counter-clockwise.  The smallest circle has a standing tuft and one of the other small circles has a markedly off-centre centre.  The oval has a circular centre, but an oval perimeter–a feature which has been present in many of the Dutch circles in recent years and specifically in a field very near this one in which (in 2010) burned seed-heads were also found in a formation.
