A LOCH Ness Monster hunter has spotted a mysterious black shape moving on the Scottish waterway – the fifth official sighting this year.
Kalynn Wangle, 28, from Oregon, USA, filmed the object via webcam as it moved along the surface of the water in the Scottish Highlands.
The reported online sighting of the legendary loch beast has been hailed as "as good as it gets".
According to the Official Loch Ness Monster Sightings Register, the creature was seen moving for several minutes before disappearing.
Kalynn Wangle, 28, posted the clip on Youtube after capturing it on webcam on March 17.
The Nessie fan wrote: "At 16.15pm a very large dark shape appears to be swimming from left to right at the very front of the shore.
"It seems to be making a wave for a bit, and either surfaces for a second or is just under the surface."
Kalynn, who has posted several webcam sightings on her 'Team Nessie' channel, said the mystery shadow moved behind a tree and "doesn't pop back up".
She said: "A friend of mine that I met through the webcam chat asked me to take a look at it.
"I had never seen anything quite like it on the webcam before and I thought it was interesting enough to make a video.
"When it is really visible, it's much longer than any boat that I have seen on the webcam.
"To me, it really looks like there is a large animal in the water, and it's possibly making a wave as is moves just under the surface."
Gary Campbell, who runs the sightings register, said that Kalynn's sighting was the best someone can hope for without visiting Loch NEss in person.
He said: "It's as good as it now gets with the webcam reports.

"Less than a quarter of reports make it on to the register – the rest we get can all be explained.
"This year looks good for sightings so far and what has been reported is on a par with previous years."
He said they hoped to welcome people back the loch as soon as possible as "there is really no substitute for being on the shore or on the water and having a look."
Footage of the sighting, which took place over three minutes, was sped up to make the shape's movement clearer.
Kalynn is convinced the fifth official sighing of Nessie this year is genuine.
She said: "I watched this footage carefully, a few times over.
"What really got to me was the fact that you don't see the shape again once it goes behind the tree.
"I watched for nine minutes afterward just to be sure. That's when I got excited that this could be Nessie."
She added: "I 100% believe in Nessie. There is still so much about the world we live in that we don't know."
Kalynn hopes to visit Scotland to see Nessie in person.
