In an unofficial 15th sighting just this year, the Loch Ness Monster appears to have been caught on video in a camper’s 4k drone footage.
This Loch Ness Monster sighting has yet to be recorded by the Official Loch Ness Monster Sightings Register, but it’s hard to argue with the images taken by his camera.
Ironically, the man who shot the footage with his drone, Richard Mavor, didn’t even realize that he had captured a look at the mythical creature until viewers commented on his video.
The 54-year-old was taking the video for his YouTube channel, Richard Outdoors, while participating in the Great Glen Canoe Challenge for the Alzheimer’s Society.
“I couldn’t believe it. I had to rewind the footage several times and have watched it several times since,” said Mavor.
“I don’t know what it is but it certainly has the same shape as previous sightings of Nessie.
“The more I watch it I think ‘crikey!’ there really wasn’t anything in the area that could be.
“There was no driftwood or anything like that so who knows?” Mavor continued.
“We had just parked up and I thought I would get some nice shots on the beach for my YouTube.
“I didn’t notice what I had picked up until others told me to watch out for it.
“It could be a trick of the light but we can’t be sure.”
Over the years, dating all the way back to 565 A.D., there have been over 1,140 sightings of the Loch Ness Monster recorded.
Viewers of Mavor’s video were quick to pin down exactly when the Nessie sighting occurred with many commenting that is happened around the four minute mark (3:52 to be more precise).
“Was that Nessie I spied ‘neath the water early on in the film?” one viewer asked.
“Richard there is a shape in the water at 4 minutes and three seconds approaching the shingle beach it was Nessie coming to wish you luck on the trip,” wrote another.
