A veteran Loch Ness monster hunter says he has finally "proved the existence" of the mythical beast with a clip showing a mysterious presence in the waters.

Eoin O'faodhain again admitted that he experienced a "shock for life" when he saw a strange black figure about 10 feet (3 m) long in the lake while watching a live broadcast via webcam.

Now he says the images resemble Nessie, portrayed in the 2007 film "The Water Horse," and believes they can take the legendary lake monster "from folklore to reality."

He explained:

"I noticed a splash and movement on the screen on the right, as well as a long black figure, and immediately started recording the screen of this object. I was excited because he stayed on the surface of the water, moving very slowly, unlike a big fish that jumped out of the water, but then sank."

The 58-year-old enthusiast often logs in to watch the water through a webcam from his home in County Donegal, Ireland.

He added:

"This object was neither a fish nor a log, for that matter — it was moving at a controlled speed, slowly, unlike a log that would move with the current. I believe it is a living being."

Original news

A veteran hunter of the Loch Ness monster says he has finally “proven the existence” of the mythical beast with a clip showing a mysterious presence lurking in the waters.

Eoin O’Faodhagain admitted he got the “shock of my life” when he saw a strange black shape, estimated to be 10ft long, in the loch while he watched a livestream through a webcam.

Now he says the images evoke the Nessie depicted in the 2007 film, Water Horse, and believes they could bring the legendary lake monster “from folklore to reality”.

He explained: “I noticed a splash and movement on the screen coming into view on the right, and a long black shape, and I immediately started a screen recording of this object.

“I got excited because it remained on the surface of the water, moving very slowly, unlike a large fish that would leap out of the water, but would then submerge.”

The 58-year-old Nessie enthusiast often logs on on to watch the water via webcam from his home in County Donegal, Ireland.

He added: “This object was no fish, or a log for that matter – it was moving in a controlled speed, slow, unlike a log which would be moving with the current. I believe it is a live creature.”

Over the years he has racked up multiple entries in The Official Loch Ness Monster Sightings Register.

But he thinks the latest images could be the most crucial in the long search for prove of Nessie's existence.

He added: “I believe in the Loch Ness Monster after witnessing a live sighting in July 1987. I think my video and photos on Saturday have proven the existence of the monster, and brought her from folklore to reality.”

The sighting was captured at Shoreland Lodges, near Fort Augustus on the loch’s southern shore, using a webcam maintained there by Visit Inverness Loch Ness.

It lasted for about 10 minutes and clearly showed the shape’s movement across the water.

Eoin, who works as a hospital clerk, described what he saw as a “very strange looking creature” and believes it could represent an unknown species.

“There’s a tail in shaded grey, a black round curved hump in the centre, and what looks like a fin near the front of the creature,” he continued.

“The head and neck are at an angle from the rest of the body, and there’s what looks like a long snout.

“I don't think there is anything that we know about today in the lakes and seas of the world that resembles that shape. One hypothesis for the existence of the Loch Ness Monster is that it is an unknown species.”
