Has Nessy moved to Australia?

The Loch Ness Monster appears to have upped sticks and relocated to sunnier climes, if this photograph is anything to go by.

The snap, taken from a beach on Magnetic Island, off Townsville, in Queensland, Australia, shows what looks like Nessie's distinctive long, curved neck bobbing up and down in the water.

One man who saw the mysterious shape was marriage celebrant David "Crusty" Herron.

He told Australia's Sunrise breakfast TV show: "The weather is perfect - that is why Nessie is here.

"I was walking on the beach when somebody shouted out 'for God's sake it's the Loch Ness Monster'.

"I looked over and there was this sort of beasty thing just moving around about 200m out.

"The head was approximately a metre and a half out of the water and it was bobbing up and down.

"I would estimate it was about four metres long.

"It could be a Plesiosaurus or something like that."
or so reports the Daily Mirror.

I'm not entirely sure how the weather being "perfect" means Nessie would go to Australia, not when you consider he's used to the Scotland climate which, let's be honest, is nothing like Australia's!

LOL, well, some people...

You can clearly see that the leading edge is squared. Not only does the 'neck' appear to be a box shape the front plane of that box extends down to the front of the 'body' as well. The 'head' also appears to be on a pivot.

Perhaps an alien lego nessie?
