Seems I saw a documentary on this a few years back, and they determined that this was caused by a fungus.
In my local parks and rec's we get dark green circles of grass that remind me of these fairy circles, I believe these too are fungi related (well my fuzzy recollection of being told this believes this). This also reminds me of types of bushes that grow outwards in a circular shape leaving no foliage in the centre.
Interesting article, thanks for posting Saru.
I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to show me where the hell Helen of Annoy has been for the past couple of months.

Actually, the real cause is due to a little known and very rare creature called the Lesser Spotted Six legged Pygmy Limping Hyrax Pig. This creature is very small and rarely seen due to it's ability to camoflage itself (like a chameleon). The legs on the right side of it's body are shorter than those on the left causing the creature to move in circles when it walks. Hence, as it walks round in circles, feeding off the grass, you end up with these bare patches.
I feel sure that Tailormaneinafog aka Sunny Blues will back me fully on this one
