New Loch Ness Monster footage surfaces

Eoin O'Faodhagain from Donegal captured the video from a webcam that overlooks the famous Scottish loch.
The hospital clerical worker, who often checks the webcam feed to see if he can spot anything, was shocked when he noticed an unusual object moving through the water on April 30th.

"I couldn't believe my eyes," he said. "I just started recording it on my phone. I just followed it. It was very unusual, it was certainly something big - it dived down and up again and dived and disappeared."

"It was not a boat and not a log. I would say it was Nessie."

"I believe in Nessie but not as a plesiosaur - but as something that has evolved in Loch Ness over thousands of years."

Gary Campbell, Keeper of the Official Register of Sightings at Loch Ness, was particularly impressed by the sheer length of the footage given that most Nessie videos last for only a few seconds.

"As far as Nessie footage goes this is a feature film," he said. "Normally you only get videos of one of two seconds. It is remarkable in its length and again shows the increased sightings of Nessie from the internet."

"Clearly it is something that dives in and out of the surface with water splashes and reflections. It is unexplained. The object would be no larger than 20ft."

"There is something there on the video that is clearly moving."

The footage itself can be viewed below.

That's more likely to be a boat moving on top of the water than anything. Video proves nowt... as usual.

Hi Carnoferox I beg to differ, it was filmed by an Irishman using a common fuzz feature camera while drinking Poitin an alcohol made from potatoes. jmccr8

So it's a Christian monster then, kinda reminds me of the story about the missionary in Africa that came face to face with a lion. He got down on his knees and prayed to God that this would be a Christian lion, and the lion kneeled down and prayed thank you Lord for this food to eat. jmccr8

I think this might really be just a long catfish or sturgeon. Some of these fish end up like eels, they're so long.

There is no substitute for an actual dedicated camera or video camera with a telephoto lens . Cellphones are a novelty to me when used as a video or still camera. Usually videos shot on a cellphone are about as  stable as a monkey riding a kangaroo trying to get a smooth video.

Just to re-iterate; the reason the video looks so distorted, and with odd colours, is that we are NOT looking at the original video footage.  The person who uploaded the Youtube video is pointing his camera at a computer monitor. The original footage is being displayed on that monitor. So we are seeing a video of a video.  Which begs the question; where was the original video taken, and why wasn't THAT directly uploaded ?  I would suggest that this is NOT Loch Ness that we are seeing.

Good god. Iv'e no idea if it had been deemed a Christian monster or not (I didn't really read all of the wiki info) Interesting tale concerning the lion and the missionary tho.
