Oxleaze Copse, near Stitchcombe, Wiltshire, 21 May 2017. The season’s first barley formation, this was cut out by the farmer the day it appeared. Image by The Crop Circle Connector, who as far as I am aware are the only people to have gotten pictures of it.

Alton Barnes, Wiltshire, 25 May 2017. Barley. A very pretty quintuplet design in the field below the Milk Hill white horse. I think it would look better without the ‘crown’ but there you go. Image by Hugh Newman.
Winchester, Hampshire, 25 May 2017. The season’s first wheat design, in a field that doesn’t look anywhere near ready yet. Image by Hugh Newman.
Broad Hinton, Wiltshire, 28 May 2017. Barley. This clearly looks like it went wrong and was abandoned part-finished. Image by Lucy Pringle
Broad Hinton (2), Wiltshire, 28 May 2017. A much better design in an adjacent field to the first Broad Hinton formation. A quite beautiful and original design, featuring 75 small circles. It is a shame the pentagram is a little lop-sided, otherwise this would be one of the best circles of the season. Image by Lucy Pringle.
