New Nessie Sighting?

A local Scottish couple claims to have spotted what they believe was Nessie on June 15th, though some are questioning the sighting due to its timing. Mr. and Mrs. Hargreaves have run a local cafe on the loch for one year and during that time they have spotted nothing unusual. However, about 2:30-3:00pm on June 15th, 2011, Jan Hargreaves says she and her husband saw "something that looked bizarre."

According to her and her husband, the unknown object was black with a neck too long to be a seal's. It disappeared underwater for about 30-40 seconds, then returned. The entire encounter lasted a good four to five minutes.

Critics note the sighting took place at the beginning of tourist season, and by a shopkeep. However, expert Steve Fettham noted that it was from the same vantage point as Tim Dinsdale's most famous video of Nessie, filmed in 1960. He was also believes locals' sightings more credible than those of tourists.
