CROP circle enthusiasts are looking forward to the growing season and the chance to see more of the creations.

These photos taken by include one on farmland at Fulley Wood at Tichborne, near Alresford.

In the 1980s and early 1990s there was fierce controversy over the cause of the circles with some arguing they were made by extra terrestrials, others that they were made by the weather and others, the majority view, that they are man-made.

The area around Winchester and chalkland generally were the usual spots for the circles which have become increasingly elaborate over time.
