In line with the 2011 reports of Bownessie, here’s a flashback bit of news, with photos, from February 2007, for those who missed it. It does seem remarkably similar to the new photo, in overall outline.
Here’s the 2007 image of the Lake Windermere’s “Bownessie Monster.”
Linden Adams, 35, according to a London newspaper has taken a new photograph (above) of an object that may be an unknown cryptid in Cumbria’s Lake Windermere. It is not Nessie but the eyewitness Adams feels his new evidence may help solve the Loch Ness mystery.
The creature was reported to be 45 feet (15 meters) long and left a large wake. Despite the fact the water was calm and still, Adams said the “thing appeared, diving and thrashing around.”

Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013.
