Man records 'Nessie' on Loch Ness webcam

The Official Loch Ness Monster Sightings Register has reported its second Nessie sighting of the year.
There might not be any visitors to Scotland's iconic loch these days due to the coronavirus lockdown, but that hasn't stopped fans from checking the region's official webcam for signs of the monster.

This latest sighting, which was recorded on April 13th, was reported by Eoin O Faodhagain who had been checking the live feed just after 8am when he spotted something moving in the water.

The object, which appears white in color and shows up at the start of the footage just above the large tree at the center-right of the frame, can be seen moving slowly towards the right.

According to Eoin, it was 10ft long, protruding at least 3ft out of the water and heading southwest.

It's worth noting that boat traffic on the loch is likely to be practically non-existent at the moment, so it's unclear what the object could be.
"He explained that it took a few seconds before the object appeared to show and that there was nothing on the surface of the water beforehand," the report reads.

"There are times in the video when it's completely submerged then it's back up again."

So could this be the fabled Loch Ness Monster or is there another explanation ?

You can check out the footage he captured below.

If you fancy trying your luck at spotting the monster yourself, the webcam can be found - here.

it's a bird diving under to grab some food?

It looked as much like a UFO as anything else. It seemed to be reflective. It would take a real stretch of the imagination to make that little dot into a serpent shape.

I'm with you DanL. These white round things are so commonly seen by UFO watchers. Seeing a slow one is strange if that is what it is. Three years ago I saw two white orbs on two different late evenings at 10:30 PM CST rise extremely fast from Upper Manitou Lake, Ontario. They came up over 2 miles West of my location at Green Island Lodge! MK

  Annnnnnd the bs start here. ^ Official.  Fishing is now prohibited because of the lockdown, there are more and bigger fish around. The wildlife, birds, are having a field day. He caught this on a livestream ffs!!!  Clearly pixels and reflection. Looks very much like a fish, reflection from the sun creates the white around it. I see white reflection all the time in the right light on the water on objects and that is with a direct eye on the water, not through a camera. Still can not stop laughing at the "official " bit.

"According to Eoin, it was 10ft long, protruding at least 3ft out of the water and heading southwest." I've hooked some big fish up in Canada but never that big! MK

Didn't see anything but a white dot moving across screen.  That could have been a duck or a floating bleach bottle.  Where do people get this sort of crap?

Put the camera closer where it can resolve something or, get a camera than works at that distance. Otherwise, what is the point of doing this at all?
