Hay or straw ‘tornado’ whips through Dummer in Hampshire


In the Youtube video posted by farndek (YouTube), it looks as if supernatural forces are at work: It was completely still all around the vortex!  But, of course, the more rational explanation is that whirlwinds can form anywhere and at any time.

Description of the video:

The harvest has been gathered in, leaving the rows of straw awaiting to be baled. As I walked alongside this vortex appeared and started sending the straw in a anti clockwise spiral.
