Loch Ness Monster?

Quote:
It's been said before and it's being said again .. Nessie is alive under the waves of Loch Ness.
Once more the notoriously shy Loch Ness monster has been reportedly sighted in Scotland's deepest loch. This time close to a commercial fish farm.
Jon Rowe, from nearby Lewiston in Drumnadrochit, took the eerie snaps moments before the mysterious shape slipped beneath the water.



And the stunned fish farmer is convinced that the shapes he saw in the morning light are Nessie.
He said: 'It was a very strange morning. It was misty with a bit of rain and sunny at the same time.
'There was a rainbow so I got my camera out to take a photo and noticed this really large dark shape in the loch with two humps that were barely out of the water.
'My instant reaction was "That's Nessie".'



Mr Rowe has dismissed claims that the shapes he saw in the water were not the legendary beast of the deep said to stalk the atmospheric Highland loch.
He added: 'I have no doubt, I work on the loch everyday and I've never seen anything like it.
'Almost as soon as I took the shot the shape disappeared under the water and out of sight.
The 31-year-old told how he had not believed that a monster swam the depths of Loch Ness until he captured Nessie on film.
'It can't have been a buoy or a mooring as it's in the wrong place and the ropes would be visible in the water.
'A few people have said it was birds diving under the water - but I didn't see any birds fly by. It can't have been birds - the whole thing went down into the loch.
'It was quite spooky but I think it's really interesting.'
The legend of the Loch Ness Monster began in 1933 when its 'existence' was first brought to the world's attention by George Spicer and his wife. They said they saw an unusual animal cross the road in front of them.
Countless subsequent searches of the loch over the years using sonar and other high tech approaches have failed to prove that the monster exists and lives in the loch.
The most frequent speculation surrounding the mythical creature states that it could be from a line of long-surviving plesiosaurs, though this has never been proved.
As a result the Loch Ness Monster remains a modern-day myth and sightings are often dismissed by the scientific community as wishful thinking.

i believe Adrian Shine has already consulted with Dick over this, and concluded diving birds. Right Dick?

I'd find it more likely to be accurate if it had appeared in the Beano. It would be interesting to meet with Mr Rowe to get his account,and I haven't had time to do any photogrammetry yet, but my "feel" is that the white things are about 2 inches wide, and could be the necks and lower heads of Divers sp.

I also see only one photo - are there more?

Sorry for the long answer, Gambo. Short one is that various species of Gavia have a variety of colourations depending on age, gender and time of year. AJS and I agreed that the photo could show one or more of these birds. I have not found an exact match on the Internet, but then people usually only upload good photos.

There are Black-throated Divers in the area because I saw one today, and a fish-eating bird is a likely creature to be found near a fish farm. Fish-eating birds tend to dive below the surface, and ones diving around a fish farm like the one near Dores could easily surface out of sight of someone standing on one of the floating cages, as I assume Mr Rowe was.

I hope this helps.
