First Sightings Of Nessie On Newly Installed Webcams

An eagle-eyed Nessie spotter claims to have caught what may be the first glimpse of the legendary monster using newly-installed webcams.

Cameras have been installed at locations around Loch Ness in Scotland for those fascinated by the beast.

No explicit proof has ever been made of Nessie’s existence, although it’s hoped the new webcams may do just that.

One man fascinated by the local legend of the Loch Ness monster has scoured footage from the original webcam placed on the shore, and has now turned his attention to the newly-installed cameras.

Irishman Eoin O’Fagan told the Daily Record he’d managed to spot disturbances in the loch.

“I captured two very interesting video clips on two of the new webcams recently,” the Co Donegal resident said.

“The first at the Clansman webcam Loch Ness at 20.13pm on September 6, is of a water disturbance, and a long dark shape which was recorded for four minutes and was the only darkened water visible in the recording of the loch in that time.”

He added that the second was captured at 7.35pm on September 15 at the Shoreland Lodges webcam.

Eoin said: “An object visibly appears on the left near the shore and moves steadily to the right of the screen and out of webcam coverage.

“This object is black and long in the region of six to eight feet long, like an eel, or rather a very large or giant one.

“Its dark black colour breaks the surface occasionally as it moves to the right.”

He now believes that the theory posited by Prof Neil Gemmell, a geneticist from the New Zealand University of Otago, that Nessie may be a “giant eel” could be the right one.

The 57-year-old, who has made multiple trips to Scotland to try and track the beast and made his first sighting back in 1987, stated that he’s submitted the two sightings to The Official Loch Ness Monster Sightings Register.

But he added that there seems to be some confusion over whether they will be recorded or not.
