A veteran Loch Ness Monster spotter claims to have captured this year’s first registered webcam sighting of the fabled beast.

Hospital clerk Eoin O’Faodhagain (56), from County Donegal in Ireland, captured footage of what he believes was Nessie at 3.26 pm on March 23.

The sighting has been published by Gary Campbell on the official register of Loch Ness Monster sightings website.

The Irishman said: “It involves two unexplained objects moving parallel to each other across the middle of the screen.

“After one minute and 44 seconds they disappear, and, a minute and a half later, one of the two objects reappears briefly.

“The disturbance in the water both objects make is very unlike any surface vessel would make.”

Mr Campbell wrote: “He noticed wake-like movements involving two objects moving parallel to each other at a distance of about 150 yards, across the middle of the webcam, at 15.26pm.

“Two black shapes were visible for one minute and 44 seconds, then nothing was seen until another minute and a half when one solid black shape appeared briefly in the same line across the Loch where the two shapes were heading.

“The weather is quite good and calm as you can see from the clips.”
