Default Shedding from above donor site is this normal?

Its been 1 week since my first H.T 1500 grafts strip method. recovery of the grafts seems to be going well, no real bleeding at all (guessing is a good sign). However, I've noticed that the scalp above the donor scar felt a bit thin on the ground, so i took a pic and to my surprise a load of hair seems to be gone from a place where i've usually had loads of it!? i've read about shedding from around the site that receives the grafts that eventually grow back, but is it to be expected from around the scar too? i've added a pic so you can see. If anyone has had a similar experience or knows anything about it would be grateful for some input,
thanks

Your photo doesn't show the donor scar. Are you saying you've lost hair from the crown area?

It's common to lose some hair from around the donor scar and this happens for the same reason that hair can be lost from where the grafts are placed.

On the basis of the photo, I don't see anything to be concerned about.

ok thanks,

i was taking the pic myself so couldn't get the scar as well, which is prob an inch lower than the bottom of where the hair has shed (and as my hair is quite long is difficult to see). just seems a bit random that its shed in such a concentrated line up away from the donor area. Guess i'll just have to be patient and see what happens.
