Looks like a log. I have tracked down and spoken to both the other article originator and the lady from Brixham.

From the beach I could see a large grey hump appear each time the wave went out and what looked like two monster heads popped up occasionally a very close distance off. I scrambled round the rocks to get a better look. On closer examination the large grey hump was a not very healthy looki... [More]

It is far easier to slide into the pit of belief than to climb the mountain of reason. here here! that is a pilot whale in that picture.

here here! that is a pilot whale in that picture. Almost. It's a sperm whale rather than a pilot whale and was seen by lots of observers that day in that general area.

Ooh, exciting, exciting! There hasn't been a Nessie photo for ages! Looks a bit ambiguous to me though. Could be one thing, could be the other....

They've already figured it out satisfactorily, or as close to it as they will. It's a jellyfish/turtle/sperm whale combo, sightings of different creatures.
