A major new effort to find evidence of the Loch Ness Monster is set to take place later this month.
The enigmatic beast, which is said to lurk in the depths of Scotland's most voluminous loch, will be the focus of the biggest surface watch in more than 50 years.

Headed up by the newly revamped Loch Ness Center in Drumnadrochit in collaboration with independent researchers at Loch Ness Exploration (LNE), the search will involve the use of special surveying equipment such as thermal drones and hydrophones.

Prospective monster hunters of all ages are being invited to take part in the event which will take place on August 26th and August 27th.
Additional tours and cruises will also be taking place, while the results of each day's searching will be announced in the evening as part of a special debrief.

The last major search for the monster occurred all the way back in 1972.

"Since starting LNE, it's always been our goal to record, study and analyze all manner of natural behavior and phenomena that may be more challenging to explain," said Alan McKenna of Loch Ness Exploration.

"It's our hope to inspire a new generation of Loch Ness enthusiasts and by joining this large scale surface watch, you'll have a real opportunity to personally contribute towards this fascinating mystery that has captivated so many people from around the world."

From the OP:  ...but then realized that their recording equipment wasn't plugged in.   That's all I had to see. Ciao!

Well, the study was done a few days ago. Has anyone heard about the results?

Looks like most of them had a good time anyway.  https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2023/08/29/loch-ness-monster-photos-search-nessie/70707904007/ I'd guess there won't be "results" for over a week. Depending on what was collected... Going over thousands of photos, and written reports, could take several days.

Researchers have claimed to have captured the “first ever video” of the Loch Ness Monster, seemingly shows a large animal relaxing on the bank. The bizarre sighting was made at night using heat sensing drone technology as part of the recent mass hunt for the creature in Scotland - the biggest in half a century.

They have found proof of deer grazing on the shore (Or possibly some campers)

Loch Ness Monster may be a giant eel, say scientists https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-scotland-highlands-islands-49495145

There are giant eels throughout New Zealand yet no one has ever claimed to have seen a Nessie type creature in them. But at least we’re in the realm of real world explanations now.

There is every likelihood that Nessie doesn't live in the Loch, but only visits.  During the 19th Century there was a publication that dealt with eels of prodigious size travelling across the UK by land being routinely discovered by sports fishermen.  One wonders if this was perhaps the origin of medieval myths about wyrms and dragons?

"Sadly, though, they were unable to actually record the sounds."   Gloops!
