On June 1, an 11-year-old girl snapped a photo of something in Loch Ness. The Daily Record ran a story on June 12 on the report, which reads:
The first sighting of the Loch Ness Monster in moonlight has been recorded.
As scientists scout Loch Ness for the signs of life, Nessie has reared her head again - in front of an 11-year-old girl.
The third sighting of the year of the legendary monster has been accepted by the official Nessie register.
Natalie Hodgson and her family, on holiday from Yorkshire, took a picture of the head of an unknown creature in the water at 10.30pm on June 1 from the Highlands Lodges holiday park where they were staying.
The creature remained for a few minutes caught in the moonlight before disappearing.
It follows a 'remarkable, feature film length' video of the Loch Ness Monster shot by a Nessie watcher from Ireland on April 30.
Hospital clerical worker Eoin O'Faodhagain from Donegal took a ten minute video from the Loch Ness webcam.
The creature moves from right to left and as it swam towards Urquhart Bay - a favorite haunt of Nessie - and is seen diving and surfacing with water splashes.
DNA sampling is currently being used to discover previously unrecorded organisms in Loch Ness.
However Prof Neil Gemmell, a New Zealand scientist leading the project, said he did not believe in Nessie, but was confident of finding genetic codes for other creatures.And we'll skip to the next part of the article that focuses on the new sighting:
Gary Campbell, Keeper of the Official Register of Sightings at Loch Ness, said the recent sightings showed the enduring unexplained appeal of Nessie.
He said the latest sighting was the first of the monster in the moonlight.
'I know of no other of Nessie in the moonlight. The photograph was taken by the 11-year-old girl in the family,' said Mr Campbell. 'It is unexplained.'To me this photo only looks like a blob in the water. It could be a wave, or possibly a swimming bird or other animal. Campbell's comments on the "enduring appeal of Nessie" causing lots of sightings do not help his case either… if people go to the Loch expecting to see a Nessie, they are more likely to mistake something else for it. It would not surprise me if that is what happened here and with the earlier sightings.
