The pollen ring can be seen quite clearly in the sky at the moment. I can't think of any other explanation as the cause other than sprue rust, which is currently turning the waterways into yellow boards. Could it be the cause of the ring? You also have to go hunting for the swamp rust, if you can find a suitable place.
