A webcam that watches over Loch Ness has once again provided a possible glimpse of what may be the site's resident 'monster' in a clip that shows a particularly sizeable anomaly emerging from the water. As has been the case with the only other two potential sightings of the creature this year, the latest report comes courtesy of Eoin O'Faodhagain, who diligently watches the stream from his home in Ireland in the hopes of seeing Nessie.
This most recent sighting, he explained to the Scottish Sun, occurred last Wednesday when a curious-looking and rather large object "came up out of the water and stayed motionless ... it submerged slowly into the loch disappearing from sight." O'Faodhagain claims that shortly after the oddity first appeared "splashing motions can be seen on the video," although this is difficult to discern in his second-hand video capture of the strange scene.
Be that as it may, the footage does indeed show some kind of dark object, which O'Faodhagain estimated to be thirty feet long, on the water for approximately ninety seconds before it appears to gradually sink below the surface. As one might imagine, the sheer size of the anomaly has captured the imagination of Nessie fans, who have heralded the video as featuring perhaps the biggest sighting of the creature to date.
By virtue of the April 22nd sighting, O'Faodhagain can now be credited with a whopping eight reports accepted by the Official Loch Ness Monster Sightings Register, easily making him the most proficient 'hunter' of the creature to date. And, considering the success he's had so far, it stands to reason that this is not the last time we'll be scrutinizing tantalizing footage captured by the webcam watcher.
