The Mirror and the Daily Mail have reported that tourist Tony Bligh — who was visiting the murky home of the infamous Loch Ness Monster for the first time — filmed a series of what he believed to be four or five “humps” moving through the water in perfect unison on June 1, 2016. According to the astonished Bligh:
“It was quite long. The humps were consistently the same length apart. I don’t know what it was. It was very unusual.”
Naturalist and former Nessie (and Mòrag of Loch Morar) hunter turned resident skeptic, Adrian Shine, claims that the video shows nothing more than boat wake. He may well be right, but a (huge) part of me hopes that, against all biological odds, at least a handful of the progeny of the great LAKE MONSTER colony that once occupied the peat-stained waters of Urquhart Bay and beyond are still managing to eke out an existence in this second decade of the 21st Century; tenaciously holding out against the specter of extinction… at least we can hope… VIVA NESSIE!
