Possible Loch Ness Monster sighting reported

The elusive creature was reportedly spotted in the form of a dark shape on a webcam overlooking the loch.
Despite remaining hidden beneath the dark depths of Scotland's world-famous lake, the Loch Ness Monster has been sighted a fair number of times over the years.

Sadly though, these sightings have a tendency to be notoriously inconclusive - with witnesses reporting disturbances and dark shapes in the water that could potentially be anything.

This latest sighting is no exception.

Recorded on a webcam overlooking the loch by monster watcher Kalynn Wangle, the footage (viewable below) shows a dark shape appearing and disappearing in the water.

"On the lovely day of March 17th, a dark shape appears very close to the shore, and is seen moving from left to right," she wrote in the video's caption.
"At first it moves slow like a wave, but as it moves closer to the tree, it seems as though the dark shape has surfaced for a few seconds, or maybe it's swimming just below it."

"Once it moves behind the tree, it doesn't come back!"

While the clip is similar to another recorded on the same webcam back in April of last year, the anomalous shape is so indistinct and far away that it is impossible to conclusively identify.

"I want this to be Nessie but I reckon it's natural phenomena," said one viewer.

You can check out the footage for yourself below.

The webcam has been there for years. It is just one of those live cam webcams.  I think it is more likely to be an Otter. It seems to move around from the shore similar to one that is fishing. And I think it is especially noticeable because of the calmness of the water.  I have seen 2 or 3 of them in Scotland myself and they are fairly large, love to come out on calm waters and fish, and don't stick to fishing in the one spot, they tend to slowly move and not come back for hours.  Knowing Loch Ness a little, and knowing what the wildlife is like there, and had it been any other loch in Scot...

Agreed, I actually saw my first one in the wild not too long ago. Gorgeous, crazy smart animals. They also roll and undulate when they swim, I imagine causing a lot of people to jump to conclusions

An otter? I'm not so sure. Those fence posts look about a metre high which is the length of a grown otter. Then you've got the scale to the distance into the Loch. It looks too big to be an otter.

Five sightings already? The tourism sector must be getting destroyed financially. Get those Nessie sightings up folks!

Most large swimming creatures move their spine in an undulating movement when they swim. This thing always keeps its shape as a straight line. I think it is more like a submerged treetrunk floating in a streaming.

There must be many of them to reproduce and survive.  Nessie is a hoax.
