Dust Devil Swirls Hay Through the Air in English Countryside

A dust devil lifted hay into the air, whirling it around a field in Beenham, near Reading, much to the amusement of onlookers.

Footage of what some would term a “hay devil” was shot by Chris Beadsmoore, who told Storyful that the video was filmed at close to 1 pm on July 18.

On July 18, the Met Office tweeted that it was the hottest day of the year “so far for both Wales and England with both countries recording temperatures in excess of 30 Celsius.”
