Well, it seems that I’ve become a drone owner, even though I never imagined, in a million years, that I would want one.

Anyway, when out and about recently I found this giant crop circle, in north Dorset. Certainly most of the locals that I met didn’t even know this was there, apart from one family who’d come looking. Luckily, I was able to tell them where it was. They carefully made their way to the crop circle, and they are the small ‘ants’ you can see walking and running around in the video. 

And no, I don’t know if the farmer knows he has a crop circle in his field!
