Numerous circles near Mere

Two different types of circle formations on fields can be seen near the little town of Mere in Somerset. Last week at the bottom of Whitesheet hill a stunning crop circle appeared (top). Whitesheet Hill is a beautiful area, consisting of chalky ground and rare flora and fauna, as well as a dozen neolithic burial mounds, a causeway camp and an iron age hill fort (so Wikipedia tells me).

A few miles away is the CD Sea (bottom). Local artist Bruce Munro has created (with help from volunteers) an ocean of 600,000 CDs that shimmer in the sun. Take sunglasses if you're going: it's positively blinding.
