Ghost hunters photograph 'hooded figure' in Sherwood Forest

An alleged apparition has been caught on camera in the woods thought to have once been frequented by Robin Hood.
There are few forests in England as famous as Sherwood - the home to the legendary (and mostly fictional) Robin Hood and his band of merry men as they robbed from the rich to give to the poor.

So steeped in history is this stretch of woodland that it has become a popular visitor attraction as well as a target for paranormal investigators hoping to capture evidence of its long-deceased inhabitants.

Most recently, paranormal investigator Dean Buckley and his spiritualist medium partner Veronica had been exploring the woods when they captured something unusual on camera.

It was January 29th and after 11:30 in the evening, meaning that the place was pitch dark.

The image they captured shows what they maintain to be the ghost of a hooded figure - one that Veronica believes may have been one of Robin Hood's merry men.
"I'm interested in Robin Hood, always have been," said Dean.

"I caught it on my camera and I was so excited. When we were in the forest we felt we were being watched from all angles, we felt it every time as we went deeper."

"We heard whistles and footsteps behind us and saw shadows. We would call out to them. I felt excited I always do, it doesn't bother me."

Sadly, though, the photograph isn't exactly clear - appearing as a vague shape in the gloom.

Could it be one of Robin Hood's men ? While it's possible, we're unlikely to ever know for sure.

I'm no guru zen master of photography, but I'm thinking a fingerprint on the camera lense.

If she spoke to the ghost why do they not know who he was?  What a load of nonsense.

That could be almost anything from a tall stump to Godzilla's midget cousin!! Not too impressive to me.

Fingerprint on the lens is  a good idea,kind of looks like a thumb print. I believe the british group Haunted Finders has been there and had similar experiences, on their channel on Youtube. Now I believe they have mentioned about seeing a hood figure or figures there and a couple of other haunted places.  Some of these are NOT ghosts but humans ,some coven. Know they went to some castle, to investigate, when they heard some cars and then  some people talking and moving, and got the heck out of there.They  Didn't know if it was some teenagers  goofing around, just checking out a haunted place,...

So we’re capturing fictional characters as ghosts now? Hmmmm, who would I like to see? Do you think cartoon characters would show up?

A number years back a somewhat sincere poster was telling a tale about hidden figures in the woods and just refused the highly likely possibility it was eccentric humans in outfits.
