Earth Mysteries [Apr. 28th, 2014|08:54 pm]
Tony Grist
There are lots of little paths running all over the fields; not deep or wide- not cutting down to the bare earth- but rather like the grooves left by a bicycle wheel.  I wonder what made them. Was it the sheep when there were sheep (there haven't been any for nearly two years) or are they rabbit runs?

Also there are several circular formations. They stood out very clearly a month or two back when the vegetation inside them was quite different from the vegetation outside, but now- with the grass growing at the rate of about an inch a day (I exaggerate)- they're very much harder to see. The biggest of them must be about ten to fifteen feet across and has, I noticed today, one of those bicycle-track paths running round it.  Are they natural formations, fairy rings, perhaps, or is there archaeology underneath?

Cats patrol neighborhoods following the same paths, wearing trails. Other animals may do likewise.

Not sure about the rings.

Foxes perhaps?

It won't be cats in our case. No-one round here has one.

Indeed, quite a common syndrome in many species, rabbits and foxes certainly included. Arguably humans also. ^_^

I see little trails leading into the hedgerows. I would never have noticed them, but Brith seemed to find them interesting and he drew my attention to them by his sniffing. My guess was foxes, but it is only a guess.

Regarding the circles, the goats used to produce circles like that when tethered. Otherwise there could be stones underneath.

The circles might be hut circles or perhaps the remains of rick bases.
