At last a definitive photo of the Loch Ness Monster! Gill you can now hold your head up high as a fully signed up honorary member of the Cryptozoologist Society!

Not only that but you have set an interesting conundrum which will have members of the CS emailing, tweeting, texting etc. for years to come:

Did Nessie somehow navigate through the locks at Inverness, then swim up the river Beauly or can he in fact move on land, as suggested by the famous sighting by Mr Spicer and his wife who saw him cross a road in front of their car on July 22nd 1933?

Note to Martin: I was very tempted to click on Mark's identification but thought it might upset your reputation scoring, so I stuck to agreeing with Gill!
