Latest Webcam from Eoin




As far as I know, there has been no lochside reports of the monster yet, and we can largely put that down to the current covid-19 lockdown as tourists (generally) stay away from the loch and locals are restricted in their movements outside of their houses. With all that in mind, it could turn out to be a low year for sightings, perhaps the most in a long time.

So, as more and more people go online to fulfill their needs and wants, the Loch Ness webcam comes more to the fore more than ever before. So, as things stand, we have three reported sightings, all of them on webcam, all of them on one webcam and all from our friend, Eoin O' Faodhagain. The video can be viewed here from its YouTube link and has received over 200,000 as I type:


The video was recorded at 0826 on Wednesday the 22nd April. The Sun newspaper ran the story from which I quote:

A NESSIE enthusiast claims he has spotted the Loch Ness Monster for the third time this year.

Eoin O'Faodhagain says his recording is the biggest ever "confirmed" sighting of the mythical beast. The 55-year-old veteran Nessie watcher believes he saw the legendary creature swimming and splashing about in Urquhart Bay last Wednesday. He describes spotting a 30ft long shape in the water before quickly hitting record on his camera. In the video, a long black shape can be seen floating atop the water.

The mysterious object remains suspended in the water for a few moments, before slowly submerging over the course of two minutes. As the clip ends, the shape disappears without a trace under the tranquil waters of Loch Ness. Mr O'Faodhagain, from Drumdoit, Co Donegal, immediately recognised the creature and submitted his findings to the Official Loch Ness Monster Sightings Register.

The organisation have since "confirmed" the footage, which is thought to be the largest ever seen. The 55-year-old said the mythical beast emerged from the water and stayed motionless. But then “after a few seconds splashing motions can be seen on the video.”

Mr O'Faodhagain explained: ”Then it submerged slowly into the loch disappearing from sight."

“This sighting is also special because there was no boat traffic or wave disturbance in the video and the surface of the loch was calm.”

He believes the pictured Nessie was at least 30 feet long and rose at least 4 to 5 feet high.

He said: “It was amazing to see such a large image caught on video compared to my previous sightings.”

Mr O'Faodhagain is no stranger to Nessie, having caught the first sighting of the decade back in January as well as a further sighting earlier this month on 14 April – as well as four times last year.


Now, as stated before, the quality of the image is diluted by four factors, the distance between camera and object, the quality of the camera, the quality of the screen displaying the feed and the fact that another camera is recording the screen. A normal Loch Ness image only involves the first two factors. But there is not a lot Eoin can do about that. 

Eoin reckons it is his best image yet and I would tend to agree with that and he reckons the extent of what we are looking at is about 30 feet and about 4-5 feet out of the water. The main thing is that the object appears to submerge which is important in excluding various candidates. He also told me it came up out the water, there was nothing there when he began watching, though this happened too quickly to record. A further image he took can be seen below.




He also said there was evidence of splashing around the object, which is a bit harder to see in the video. In this instance, we can't look to visitors to the castle to corroborate as the site is currently closed. So what could it be and what are others saying? Looking around the chat sites, we have suggestions of a tree trunk, a windrow or the monster. The only reasonable "natural" contender is the windrow which is a reflection of the dark hillside amidst more turbulent water. That phenomenon is explained here.

Having seen pictures of windrows, this image looks sharper but that may be due to the increased contrast. However, the main factor in favour of a reflection is to watch the large shadow above it and note how it decreases in darkness and size in sync with the smaller dark patch. This would be enough to suggest to me that it is a form of reflection fading as the sun shines more.

This is demonstrated in the two snapshots below from the beginning and end of the video clip. Note the large reflection on the surface has more than halved in sized while the smaller monster one has completely vanished. This is because they both have a common cause.





On a related note, I contacted Historic Scotland about installing a webcam at Urquhart Castle. They said they had no plans, despite me suggesting it would be great publicity for them to stream the loch with some part of the castle complex in the foreground (after all, you have to prove it was taken at Loch Ness). I suspect this is more a financial issue to them and will pursue it further. Such an installation would cut the distance by a factor of at least 10, depending how close an object was to the camera and root out the false positives from further webcams.

    5. I had a good look at the "super epic nessie sighting" but again low res webcam at one mile never equals super or epic! It is interesting enough and looks a few feet across to me. The video blocking, pixellation and streaming glitches makes it hard to determine what is solid or not. When it apparently submerges, is that just the video glitching? The clue is normally to look at what the trees are doing. If they shimmer, the object will too. Oh for a closer webcam!

  2. It vanishes abruptly at 1.45 although that might be due to a video cut.

    1. Yes, but Eoin has replied to me and I will post that as he thinks there is splashing.

    2. There does seem to be some white bits to the front of the object as if some kind of movement is happening.Could it be the classic foam that people have claimed to see on some sightings over the years?

  4. It's an otter or a boat or a wave or a log....take your pick. Well that's what the professional sceptics always say.
    But the silence relating to these cam sightings is deafening.
    Does anyone think the first still image above is vaguely similar to the 2006 photo taken through a car window by an American tourist?

    1. The 2006 picture was motion blur whereas this is blurriness due to distance.

    2. Absolutely. It's a pity it's so far away. A closer cam should be very interesting - as others have said .
      Looking a bit closer at it I think I can see white waves or a "foam'
      I'm thinking about all the reports where the creature just sinks vertically and wondering about the "gills" exhaling ,allowing for the submerge.

      Delete
  5. At 1:45 the object performs the classic aquatic turtle sinking maneuver, which is it sits still on the top-water and then goes straight down, like somebody pulled the plug on it.

    ReplyDelete
  6. This is just an inconclusive mystery blur in dimming light conditions. Slightly interesting in that it is about the right dimensions and size for a large animal I will give it that.

    If Eoin observed a Nessie here we just would not be certain with the camera distance. There has to be a " Castle Cam " or more closer to the water. Otherwise we will just keep observing and speculating various blotches and blurs.

  7. Well I finally may just be impressed by a recent video! Over the last while I have been sounding like a skeptic but this " super epic nessie sighting " video has me intrigued. I would probably call this new video " interesting dark thing moving on Loch Ness surface " but whatever, we have a webcam video of actual interest here. For me it has been a long while.

    Of course the camera is too distant but this video depicts a large dark object swimming closer to the camera at a gradual yet measurable pace. I cant tell what it is. I don't see a jet-ski or boat, no swimming seal or otter or deer. It is too large for any fish. I can't tell but there seems to be a bright area above the object ( possibly water wake or reflection )

    1. Comparing it with old images of the lake cruisers it seems to me to be moving at around 1.5 mph. That's too slow for a jet-ski or a boat under power. I agree it's hard to imagine what known object this can be.

  9. This recent " Epic Nessie Nessie Sighting " video has another thing going for its authenticity. No wind ( in the video ) and no boats on the Loch. The water is still and yet this dark object passes through as the only movement on the Loch surface.

    Maybe Nessie like many other animals around the world are more safe and free to make appearances due to the current covid restrictions keeping people away. Less boat traffic and human commotion is certainly a blessing if you are an elusive beastie.

  12. Reminds me of the Edward Mountain Expedition photo, too big to be a standing wave or a bow wave of a boat.

    BTW the Surgeon's Photo has made into Time's 100 Most Influential Photos Of All Time. Fake or not, it is an iconic image I suppose.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Wow. That Epic Nessie vid, despite the low quality, showed that 'something' rather clearly. I could make out various white pixels here and there implying splashing thought the water. Unless its some kind of boat or digital fakery, I'd almost place it in league with Dinsdale's film if it weren't for the low rez.

    I agree with petitioning whoever decision it may fall on to put up a high res camera, especially if it is gifted.

    1. Well, thank you for watching my video. :) It is not digital fakery. I'm not that good at video editing. As I was editing the footage on my computer (adding circles and text) I could very well clearly see that it was splashing at times. Which is why I added a zoomed in clip.
      I would also love to see a higher quality camera, but untill then I will continue watching. :)

    1. Thanks for that Roy, I thought it was one of my better video clips. I told Roland that I thought there was water disturbance of some sort at the near side and in my opinion that rules out A Windrow.I believe we are looking at a 30ft plus living creature in this video.The way this long black object slowly submerges from view is the key to this sighting.I looks to be
      submerging in a controlled manner, not just disappearing like a reflection.

    2. Have you considered using video capture software? I just tried the Windows 10 Game Bar, which is built-in to Windows 10, and it did a good job of capturing a clip of the Loch Ness webcam (alas, only with sheep). It's easy to use. I don't know what its limitations are.

  18. Are we going to get an opinion of the so called 'experts' on this latest footage,or is this one too difficult for them to find an answer? It seems they are very quick to give opinion after opinion on footage of a monster which is obvious debris or boat wakes, but not so quick in coming forward with their 'i have years of experience' answers when things are not so clear cut.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Good point Gezza. I actually think the "Super epic Nessie sighting" film is the most exciting possible evidence for a creature in the loch for a long time. I can imagine it being pored over and analysed for years as the Dinsdale film still is. In fact, it would be good to see it given the JARIC type treatment. I'm sure there is much more to be said about it!

    1. Thank you! :) I think that would be really cool actually! I was really excited when my sighting was accepted by the Official Loch Ness Monster Register! Like a dream come true for me! :) I have been collecting footage of the Loch since I started watching. I do have more that I plan on uploading. However, they are not as good as my first video, but still interesting. I love watching the camera, low quality or not and will continue to share my findings because I believe it is important to do so. :)

  20. The Super epic Nessie sighting is a small fishing boat which was seen by Steven Feltham in Dores going up and down the Loch. He mentioned it in a recent interview he did by MattChat" A podcast on Anchor. He was asked about boat traffic on the loch during the Covid Lockdown, and said the only boat he has seen was a Small Fishing Boat.When you see it close up as it goes by the castle, you realise its a small fishing boat, and not Nessie.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Steve knows the Loch no doubt. Tough call for me here on it being a boat. Which boat and can Steve provide a photo? There is part of the video ( maybe poor cam quality ) where this " boat " vanishes for moments further out on the Loch.

      The white part looks like water wake yet it also seems to be stationary close to the castle. If that is a boat it is very dark, almost too dark.

      I don't see enough to convince me it is a boat. I see something that I cant identify. Given the quality of the camera though I could be wrong.

      Delete
    2. So, I will answer honestly here.
      When I first recorded the footage, I also assumed it was a boat, but thought it was kind of weird how it showed up in the middle of the Loch. I thought nothing of what I recorded till about a week later when I zoomed in on it. I also saw a small fishing boat on the cam not too long after I filmed the sighting. I recorded the boat as well and compared the two video clips. There is a difference. The boat is visible the whole time, the object in my video is not. The boat goes in a straight path across the camera view. The object in my video does not. Originally I uploaded it to report it to the Official Sightings Register and to show a couple of friends of mine. I really didn't think it was going to get a whole lot of attention. But it makes me happy that people are interested in it. :)

  21. So because Steve says it is a fishing boat we have to accept it is a fishing boat? Is that what your saying unknown?

    ReplyDelete
  22. The post by Unknown where he says the object is a small fishing boat doesn't actually make it clear whether this is Steve Feltham's opinion. He merely quotes Steve as saying the only boat traffic on the loch at the moment has been a small fishing boat. Unknown then appears to make the assumption that this therefore must be the object filmed. I'm not sure whether this is also Steve's opinion. It would be interesting to find out. I stand by the view that the film warrants further analysis and is one of the most interesting pieces of possible evidence for a long time.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Just dropped in here to see if theres anything interesting happening, an I see that "unknown" is supposedly quoting me from a recent podcast interview that I did.
    I've been back to that recording, and I cant find the bit where I say that I think it's a boat, but then that's probably because I dont think it's a boat, and because I'm pretty sure I didn't say that this film is of a boat, I do think that most of the webcam sightings are boats but as we all agree the camera is such poor quality that its impossible to tell.
    I admit that this is the most interesting example from the webcam but I think I agree with roland that its natural phenomenon. You do get extremely calm patches of water in slightly rougher water that look somewhat like a small oil slick, very sharp edges definition against the water that's around it.they will often decrease in size and then disappear as the rougher water swallows them up.it does look like one of those to me, but then again it could be interpreted as a back, impossible to tell.
    There is one or two small boats that are often out on the water at the moment, but this is not a film of one of them, in my opinion.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I wouldn't call it a windrow though.
    When I think of a windrow I think of something more in the style of whatever Gordon Holmes filmed, where the wind pushes a small patch of surface slightly harder than the surrounding water making it rougher and apparently darker, whereas this is more the opposite where the small patch is markedly calmer than the rest for a while, and as roland says ,it then reflects the dark hillside.
    Giving an oily appearance on the disturbed water around it.
    I also interpreted the white bits on the near side of it to be pixelation due to the film being a poor film of a poor computer image. The branches on the trees in the foreground also get a bit of pixelation occasionally, and nobody is thinking that they are causing splashes on the water.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I also agree with the comments made by the second "unknown" about what the first "unknown" said about what he interpreted as my opinions.
    As I hadn't expressed any opinion in the first place, my opinion was indeed unknown.

Was a small boat in the same area around the same time as his video and secondly if he saw and recorded the small boat how did it compare in size to the video we are discussing?? ?.. Thanks..

  30. Hi Roy. There seems to be a lot of confusion about which video clip people are discussing at the moment. Roland started the blog Latest webcam from Eoin, then people started to discuss the Super Epic Nessie sighting at the same time.People are now replying about one sighting and other people are writing about the other one.Its a very mixed up affair.When I shot the clip the surface was dead calm and I saw no boats at that time, but a few weeks ago I did see a small boat, and was quite surprised to see it given the lockdown that Scotland is under at the moment.When your watching the webcam a lot, I notice things, some unexplained and some natural occurrences.The small boat I did see was maybe 12 feet long, that size would probably be suitable for inland waterways.Eoin O Faodhagain.

  31. Cheers for clearing it up Eoin.. So how did the small boat fare up sizewise on the webcam compared to the object you got on video? ...cheers

    1. It was about a third of the size because I actually think the size of my black shape is between 30 and 40 feet long.I definitely think this if you saw my first image of the sighting.I did not publish it because the other 2 still images were better looking.I sent this image to Roland last week, because it shows what it was like when it emerged in the first instance.I see Steve agrees with Roland that my sighting is nothing unusual, well everyone is entitled to their opinion, I hold my own views that the object in my sighting is a living creature of some sort.I think its great that there is a Webcam, because only for it, we would have no sightings this year to discuss, due to the lack of tourism because of the lockdown.

  32. Ok.
    So, I agree that some confusion has arisen around which video people are talking about.
    I was referring to Eoin O Faodhargains latest offering in all my previous comments, a final word from me on that video, I have looked yet again at it and am going to stick with my opinion that there is nothing unusual going on. It suffers from all the ongoing problems with this webcam in as much as the shockingly poor quality of the camera is what makes the video look of interest.
    Thanks for alerting me to this second video, which as far as I've been able to understand so far is anonymous apart from the Team Nessie name.
    This ,I find a bit more interesting.
    For most of the video it behaves and appears exactly like a boat, in fact it fits the image of the boat that I have seen on occasion over the last few weeks, but then occasionally in the video it doesnt look like a boat.
    Apparently appearing out of nowhere is not typical boat behaviour, and dropping out of vision occasionally seems strange.
    I have to remain undecided about this one, it could be of great importance, or it could simply be a boat.
    As always it comes back to the same problem, the camera is far from fit for purpose.
    I believe there are reasons for this camera not being upgraded, but I'm not interested in discussing them here.
    I'm as frustrated by the amount of useless data that it produces as anyone, a good modern webcam would solve the identification of each and every one of these 'mystery' objects,and either lead to a great deal of excitement or a lot less false alarms.
    I think I will renew my efforts to get someone lochside to install a decent one, it is beyond belief that given the 23 miles of water we have to contend with, and the world renowned reputation of our resident mystery, that we are only served by one out of date useless webcam.

    1. Hello. :) The Super Epic Nessie Sighting is my video. You can call me Kalynn. Thank you for taking the time to watch my video. As I mentioned before, I too also thought it was a boat at first but thought it was kinda weird that it seems to show up out of nowhere. I have been collecting footage of the Loch as a new hobby, anything that looks weird or interesting, I record. And I thought nothing of what I recorded till about a week later when I zoomed in on it for a closer look. A few days after I figured out I may have footage of something unusual, I also saw a small boat on the cam going across the Loch, I also recorded this so I would have something to compare my other footage to. After carefully analyzing the footage of both the boat and the unknown object, it seemed to me like they were two totally different things even though the boat is farther away, it stays in view the whole time, and the object I recorded does not. I decided to upload the video to show a few friends and see what the Loch Ness Monster Sightings Register would say about it. I really didn't think it would get this much attention.I honestly thought I was going to get laughed at. I'm happy that people are taking my video seriously. :)

    1. Hi Roy,
      I am undecided as to whether it is a boat coming into camera range or a creature surfacing. Is the white patch sunlight reflecting off a boat number plate as mentioned in the Dinsdale film or is it sunlight reflecting off wet skin, I don't know. Maybe the camera is not updated so as to keep the mystery going,if everything turned out to be a boat interest might diminish.

  35. Fair play to Mikko.He put in a webcam when nobody else even thought of one.We should appreciate his effort and technology in providing a spectacular view over Loch Ness for the whole world to see. My video of my latest sighting on You Tube has been watched by people from over 40 countries, and shows the very popular interest in the Loch Ness Mystery, and this was only possible through the Webcam.When watching the webcam daily you gain a lot of information and noticeable changes as they occur in that specific area of the Loch.Eoin O Faodhagain.

  36. Re the Team Nessie video. I regret to say that I'm sure this is a boat. Much is made of the fact that the object 'disappears' from time to time but I think this is solely down to the quality of the recording. At approx 1:30 a bird flies across the screen from left to right. This bird 'disappears' twice whilst in flight. I'm not technically minded enough to offer a concrete explanation except maybe something to do with the resolution perhaps? or the fps? That said, this could still be a large creature making it's way across the Loch. It's certainly not a shadow, wave or general detritus as most of these films are.

  37. I am very surprised that the Team Nessie "super epic Nessie sighting" video hasn't received more comments from the self proclaimed experts and usual debunkers. The film is either a very large creature or a boat, it's as simple as that.I regard it as the most intriguing piece of film since Dinsdale and, as I mentioned in an earlier post, I should like to see it subjected to a JARIC type analysis. I am an agnostic as far as an unknown feature in the loch is concerned and it is quite possible this is film of a boat. However, the object does appear to submerge at one point and partially submerge at another. There is also something about the movement that does not resemble a boat. The distance and quality of the video precludes any more definite statement but surely warrants further investigation.

    1. Thanks again. :) I would love to have the footage analyzed by experts. So far, only one person has emailed me about it, and he did a trace line of my sighting and measured the speed of the object. Other than that, it hasn't gotten that much attention. Not sure why. Anyway, I also put up a video comparison of a boat and my sighting. In this video, I zoomed in a bit more on the object in two different clips if you would like to check it out. :)

  38. Veteran Nessie researcher Dick Raynor posted this on my "interactive collective" page over on Facebook,
    It might help with the ongoing quality issues relating to the webcam.

    "For those enthusiasts who like to watch the Loch Ness webcam, just a 'heads up' that you don't need to get cramp clutching your phone in the hope of recording something interesting. Just go to the webcam page, enlarge it to taste, and then hit the Windows key and the G key at the same time to open the Gaming camera. Press the record button, go away, come back later and press the stop button.
    Your video will be in your Captures folder. Enjoy."

    I hope he doesnt mind me sharing it here especially as it might cut down on the false alarms.
