Grasshopper Warbler
Of course, since the original event, sceptics and hoaxers, including Doug
and Dave, have been quick to come forward and claim that the noise was in
fact that of the Grasshopper warbler, a small bird. However, what they
neglected to take into account was that the
Grasshopper Warbler is
actually quite rare and its haunt is downs, commons and marshes - hardly
crop fields.

However, the most conclusive evidence to dismiss the Grasshopper warbler
was discovered some time later whilst I was hunting through a BBC sound
effects archive. I discovered a CD recording of the actual Grasshopper
warbler, along with all the other native warblers of the UK. I duly sampled
the recordings into the computer and compared the frequency waveform
and fourier analysis of the warblers with the recording Colin had made at
Operation White Crow. The two were clearly not the same, as shown by the
diagram below.

I was in e-mail contact with Paul for a number of days this week, discussing
again his findings seen below.  Paul volunteered to look at them again and
take a closer listen to the slowed down version of the sound.  He made a
updates to his own website on the links below to make it easier for you to
study this article.  He posted the second and third graphs below hours
before he went missing.

Paul's body was discovered floating in the sea today. A very shocking and
sad situation, beyond words I can find. In
Paul's memory the search for
answers to our world will continue.   

Paul's website and full report:
Below is the analysis carried out on the sound that was recorded during a
BBC television interview with Colin and Pat in a large crop circle at
Beckhampton, Wiltshire.  Pat felt a static field around him as noise bars broke
across the TV camera.  Within seconds the camera was destroyed.  This will
be subject to a future article but here for comparison is the result of analysis.  
NOTE how very close the frequency is to the Cheesefoot Head sound. BBC:
5.2 Khz / Cheesefoot Head: 5.4 Khz.

Courtesy Sound Engineer Mr. Peter Chow
As you can see, the sound recorded at White Crow is mainly around the
4KHz frequency, whereas the real Grasshopper warbler oscillates at around
6KHz - nearly 2KHz higher in frequency. I have subsequently analysed a
further two samples of the real Grasshopper warbler and both gave the
same readings as shown above. I think you'll agree that this confirms that
Colin Andrew's White Crow noise was not a Grasshopper warbler.

The BBC sound very similar to Cheesefoot.

Steve Wright during 1989:
You might remember a live segment he
did on the crop circles when he as
good as called my comments about the
sound analysis being conducted By
Gunner Sandberg at Sussex
University, a lie.  He said "Ive called the
University and they have not even
heard of this scientist, and know
nothing about such analysis".  Well
twenty years later Steve, here just as I
said is the analysis from Sussex
University during 1989.

NOTE: When the BBC sound was
being recorded as it happened in the
field, fault lights came on the TV
camera and the camera was destroyed.

When Pat and I appeared in the BBC
studios 'live' in Birmingham as the
recorded sound sequence and film
was shown to the public for the first
time, the studio lost power as this
sequence came on air. Generators
kicked in but a temporary blackout on
the program was witnessed throughout
the country.

The photograph below was taken by
Pat during the filming.  We have no
idea what the object is in the sky.

During the writing of this article, the
sound posted here on my site was
being played by Pat Delgado in his
home in England and the computer
locked up mysteriously, which it has
not done before.

After I transferred the original BBC and
White Crow recording onto my
computer for the top of this page, I
played it back and my own computer
also crashed and re-booted itself with
a serious error message. This it has
never done in its 6 year history.

I am conveying only the facts to you
here. If this string of experiences are
co-incidences then so be it.

Plant Growth Rates Changed When
Bathed in the Sound Frequency Heard in
Crop Circles.

The crop circle sound was first recorded by Colin
Andrews here at Cheesefoot Head in 1989, still to
this day scientists find the frequency very curious
and unique for altering plant growth rates:

Effects of the intensity of audible sound on
the growth and development of Rideau
winter wheat
Pearl Weinberger, Mary Measures
(doi: 10.1139/b79-128)


Rideau wheat seeds and (or) seedlings exposed
to 0.30, 1.25, 5.0, and 12.0 kHz sound
frequencies and one display of random white
noise at an intensity level of 92 dB grew normally,
whereas some of those exposed to the same
frequencies at 105–120 dB showed abnormalities
and reduced weights of root and shoot tissue.
Only sonication at 5 kHz and 92 dB led to
stimulated tiller growth coupled with an increase in
plant dry weight and number of roots. None of the
sound treatments affected floral initiation and
