My First Flight of 2015

On the 30th May I was told about a new circle that had appeared somewhere south west of Blandford Forum in Dorset. I immediately booked a flight for the following day, which according to the Met Office was to have a cloudy start but with sunny intervals starting to appear from around six in the evening.

Indeed it was a cold, cloudy morning and afternoon until glimmers of brightness started to appear, and by the time I got to Thruxton Airport there were enough blue patches "to make a pair of sailor's trousers", as the old saying goes.

Hoping for the best, we set off on a very long flight. The wind was against us, slowing us down, but the lush green fields below, of all wonderful shades, captivated me and I thought "how enormously lucky I am to be doing this and living in this wonderful Isle of Albion".

We found the formation quite easily. It was in barley, that beautiful, luxurious crop which sways in the wind, billowing out across the field, ruffling the crop as it goes, like sails on a boat.

Due to the wind, it wasn't easy to take pictures, as the crop from certain angles was distorted by the wind and an arterial road running adjacent to the field prohibited low flying.

In addition, I had accidentally flipped off my autofocus on the wide angle lens camera. I didn't spot what I had done for several minutes and as I wrestled with a camera I thought it had broken, as does happen quite often when flying over circles. It is very expensive to fly so every lost moment is a financial loss, and it wasn't until we were flying away that I spotted what I had done and we returned for a quick circuit of the formation.

It just shows how rusty one can become and how the smallest error can be catastrophic. It is a matter of running through all the possibilities as quickly as one can to correct the malfunction without panicking!!! I wont make the same mistake again! Had I been at school, I feel sure my report would have read "Could do better".

The weather (which has been so cold it seems like winter all over again) is due to pick up by the end of the week, so hopefully we will see more circles. I will keep you posted.

The crop circle tour on the 30th July is fully booked but there still places for the amazing private entry visit to Stonehenge. I can take more people into Stonehenge than on a crop circle tour, hence the difference in numbers for that day.

I will have to close the Stonehenge booking at the end of June so please hurry if you would like to join me on an experience of a lifetime.

There are still a few places left for the August 4th Crop Circle tour with the optional extra of a wonderful flight over the circles.

Best wishes,

New Crop Circle Photos And Update From Lucy Pringle May 2011

I have had many emails from people wondering why so little is happening in the fields so far. Maybe it is because it is still early days in the season or maybe it is because there seems to be an overall general feeling of stillness as so often happens before a great event?

I believe I am not the only one who is experiencing this sense of waiting (Not necessarily for crop circles only!).  Whatever the reason this to me is a precious moment giving me the opportunity to contemplate and rejoice in whatever we are given whilst the outside world seems to be hurtling around us at breakneck speed.

To find a place or time of stillness is a blessed gift. To find our own reality in a world of unreality, to treasure the true values of friendship and purpose of where we are going and how we are all part of each other all the world over.

On a more mundane note, the fields are in desperate need of rain and the farmers are naturally concerned for their crops; the barley is with us but not a tall as usual and the wheat is also slow in growth.

There are 2 places available on the July 28 crop circle and Stonehenge private entry tour due to a cancellation. Also that there are 6 places still available for the private entry to Stonehenge on the 28th July.  These places tend to go very fast so please get in touch with me as soon as possible if you would like to come with me on either of these outings.


Bless You All


May 2011 Crop Circle Update And A Welcome From Lucy!

Lucy Pringle
Lucy Pringle

Welcome to my fresh new crop circle news blog! I’m excited to have this as a new means to swiftly bring you news and updates about my research into crop circles and associated matters.

” The oil seed rape (canola) season is coming to as the yellow flowers fade and give way to the pale green stems andhannington crop circle may 2011 leaves. Flying over the fields of vibrant yellow at the start of the 2011 crop circle season is breathtaking as they can be seen from miles away and are the easiest to spot. I wonder how many crop circles over the year go un-noticed? Quite a few I suspect as farmers are reluctant to report them.

barleyThe next crop soon to appear will be barley, shimmering like shot silk in the sun; this is my favourite, caressing you gently as you walk through through the softly waving stems. Please remember at all times to observe the farmer’s code of conduct. I know that people in their excitement tend to rush into the fields without thinking and realising that it is not their land; the land is the farmer’s and it is their livelihood.

I seldom give talks in the summer as I am out in the fields conducting my crop circle research but an exception is the wonderful Glastonbury symposium, the longest established crop circle and alternative conference. I am always thrilled to be there and will be talking about my latest exciting research trying to establish a link between Parkinson’s disease and genuine crop circles; also showing photographs set to music of the latest formations and others from over the years. Later in the year I will be giving talks to Groups in Bosham, West Sussex, then spending 2 weeks lecturing in New Mexico, followed by talks to groups in Wiltshire and Petersfield, Hampshire and Farnham, Surrey. If anyone is interested in any of these please do get in touch and I can give further details.

Best wishes to everyone. Lucy
