Woman Claims To Capture Nessie On Loch Ness Webcam
Usually, most eager fans of the mystical creature have to make the journey up to Inverness, Scotland, in hope they get a peek at Nessie, but one woman was in the comfort of her home in Bath when she spotted the Scottish beast on the Loch Ness live web cam.
On Wednesday morning, Caroline Barnett was watching the live feed when she says she spotted Nessie bobbing up and down on the famous loch.
She told the Daily Record: "It popped up and down - and kept doing it. It kept splashing about. It was quite a size - the size of a boat but it was hard to tell because it was the other side of the loch."
At first Caroline had been sceptical about the existence of the creature but said this changed everything.
"I have been to Loch Ness a few years ago but never saw Nessie then. I didn't know if I believed in her but this is certainly some Christmas present and quite a surprise," she added. "I took quite a few videos but my phone died. I don't know what it is - it really is unexplained."
Obviously, the actual existence of Nessie will always be up for debates, but Loch Ness Monster experts have accepted Caroline's pictures and video as an official sighting.
Gary Campbell, recorder of the Official Loch Ness Monster Sightings Register, told The Record: "Initially she thought it was a boat or similar, but the object appeared animate and then disappeared into the water before reappearing. It was dark in colour and nearer the east shore of the loch."
2018 has been a pretty good one for sightings of the infamous creature, with Caroline's being the 13th.
In August a 12-year-old girl was said to have captured the 'best picture of the Loch Ness Monster in years'.
Charlotte Robinson was on a holiday at Loch Ness Highland Lodges in Invermoriston - near to the lake - when she took a photo of the lake that seemed to have quite a Nessie-like shape in it.
She said the monster came to the surface, ducked back under the water then resurfaced about ten feet away from her.
Steve Feltham, a Nessie searcher recognised having as the world's longest continuous monster-hunting vigil at the loch, said it was among the most credible photo he'd seen in years.
Whether, it was a log or not for some people these truly are spotting's of the legendary creature and for Caroline that meant an early Christmas present.
