Some initial photos of the 'formation' of randomly downed hay at
Duncan, British Columbia (May 29) have been added to the web
site, from the initial contact (name confidential by request)
and CCCRN field research assistant Tracey Gendron. Some
interesting features worth noting are the semi-circular swirls
in places, clumps of dandelions in the flattened areas still
standing with their white puffy seed heads intact, stretched and
ruptured stalk nodes and colour variations of patches of crop.

A field report by CCCRN field research assistant Joanna Emery
for the similar second 'formation' of randomly downed tall grass
at Mansfield, Ontario (#2, June 11-12) has also been added.
Similar to both the first Mansfield (May 30) and Duncan reports,
two new flattened areas were found June 11 on the landowner's
property as previously reported. A number of additional
flattened areas were subsequently reported on June 12, both on
the landowner's property (tall grass, chives, sand cherry shrubs
and tiger lilies) and in other nearby areas between Mansfield
and Dundas (near Hamilton) including three large roughly
circular areas in a hay field between Camilla and Primrose, said
to look somewhat similar to the Orillia, Ontario formation of
three circles in 2000 (classification as a separate report
pending further investigation). In some areas on the Mansfield
property, layering and bent stalk nodes (up to 90 degrees) and
clumps of dandelions again as at Duncan, many still standing
with their white puffy seed heads intact. While the occurrences
in the surrounding areas were first noticed after thunderstorms
on June 12, the initial new flattenings on the landowner's
property were first seen before that, not after. Photos and
diagrams available soon.

For research purposes, both the Duncan and Mansfield cases are
being classified as 'randomly downed' events, sharing some
characteristics and anomalies of both natural lodging and
'regular' circular or geometric crop formations, so while not
crop formations per se in the usual sense, the study of such
occurrences may nevertheless help in the understanding of the
processes involved in the creation of other (non-manmade) crop
formations, as per studies done by the BLT Research Team and

Also, the next crop circle lecture at Barclay Manor in Vancouver
is June 24, with updates on 2002 reports from Canada, England,
Germany and Holland. Free admission, more information on the web

The web site itself is also being updated, now with more storage
space, data transfer and no advertising, after some technical
problems in getting those fixes done were finally solved.
Further upgrades including new domain name to come in the near
