This post in conjunction with this video from youtube ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dkeKPlBYYbs
) helped me immensely (as I mentioned in my earlier post on this page)
the line that truly helped a lot was the "make sure you go at least 3 steps and turn once, kind of like an L" (paraphrased).
edit/add: OH OH! and while I'm chaining Baltoy, something else I realized myself while doing my first Starly - you do NOT need to go into every sparkly patch of grass! if there's not four patches or if you can't walk at least 3-4 steps to get to the patch and possibly include a turn then simply walk around the grass so you do NOT go into one of the patches, and after 50 steps reset your Radar :)
