https://www.inverness-courier.co.uk...laims-third-sighting-so-far-this-year-198000/Irish hospital clerk Eoin O'Faodhagain believes he saw the mythical creature in Urquhart Bay on April 22 after spotting a 30ft long shape in the water while watching a webcam.
The second one is the Surgeons pic the ripples match perfectly. And the brontosaurus one is exactly that, it’s a fake by Frank Searle.There's a review of Tony 'Doc' Shiels book, Monstrum over on the Wyrd Britain Blog (Friday 8th May 2020). Accompanying the blog entry is this reproduction of the front page of the Daily Mirror for Thursday 9th of June 1977, showing his most famous Nessie photo along with four smaller ones dated '64, '69, '75 and '76 - none of which I've seen before.
Or maybe I have, the 1976 one is almost identical to an illustration of a Brontosaurus I remember from one of my dinosaur books I owned as a child. Click to enlarge.

And doesn't the 1975 picture look a lot like the Ricky Phillips 'Glove Puppet' shot from a couple of years ago? Not to mention the similarity between 1969 and the Surgeon's Photo.

He speculated it could be a Greenland shark but they don't inhabit freshwater. This is a new show.I think what is interesting about the Loch Ness Monster thing is how the same discredited and admitted fake photos are still routinely trotted out as evidence.
I believe Jeremy Wade speculated that the creature could be a sturgeon in an earlier investigation. If this is a new show, maybe he’s referring to the eel DNA found in the Loch recently.
I agree, but it's not just a Loch Ness Monster thing. One doctor makes a bogus link between MMR vaccine and autism and long after he's discredited, people still believe in the link. The Cottingley Fairy photos were an admitted hoax, but there are still those who want to believe that one of them (or a small subset) may be genuine. There are grammar Nazi's who promote rules of grammar that are demonstrably false. Some people wrongly insist that the Union Jack should only be called the Union Flag unless it's flown from the jack staff of a Royal Navy ship, but they can't remember who first told them. It's far easier to start a false rumour than to end one. Indeed, any attempt to end it can be reinterpreted as an attempt to "suppress the truth".I think what is interesting about the Loch Ness Monster thing is how the same discredited and admitted fake photos are still routinely trotted out as evidence.
