There has been a run on alleged lake-monster reports this week, as The Anomalist demonstrates:

Mythical Beast Is ‘Spotted’ In Windermere Evening Mail. A TV cameraman has shot footage that some people believe appears to show a creature causing ripples in the surface of Lake Windermer in the Lake District. Dubbed “Bownessie,” the creature has been part of the folklore around the lake since 1900. Says a local councillor, "The people that have seen it believe genuinely they have seen something, even if there is no real proof yet."

Photo of Cameron Lake Monster? Cryptomundo. The British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club have returned from their weekend exploration of Cameron Lake in British Columbia with little to show for their efforts other than a ping near Angel Rock: "Something just went ‘ping’ on the alarm on the fish finder and we saw this absolutely massive object in the midst of various fish." Could it be Cadborosaurus? That cryptid was adopted as an unofficial tourism mascot in the Victoria area, and the club director feels it is real because fishermen found one inside the belly of a sperm whale in 1937 and sent it to the Royal B.C. Museum for identification. The post features a photograph taken by Bridget Horvath in August of 2007, which is said to be of the Cameron Lake cryptid. But is it only "windrows," a wake that’s created by the wind? Elsewhere on Cryptomundo, “Sea Serpent” of Bahia Discovered and Gulf of Mexico Gives Up Giant Squid.
