It appears swamp monsters are not just limited to the United States and movies. As a strange creature has been seen in a swamp in England.

I got the following report in a few days ago. It comes to us from United Kingdom and it is a rather interesting submission. We wanted to share this report to see if anyone else has seen a similar creature or had something happen in this particular location.

Here is the report:

Describe sighting in detail:

A couple years ago I went camping in a little village in the south downs (UK) with a group of friends and as I tried to sleep through our second night (I think it was our second) I just couldn't sleep. So I decided to leave the tent and see what the place was like in the middle of the night and just explore this nice place in the dark.

I took my torch but kept it off to save battery and also I liked the dark atmosphere. I went through a short path that went through a swamp and I looked out upon the swamp and just stared out into the darkness. As I was staring I noticed movement in the swamp water below me and shined my torch on it, I was a bit spooked at this point. A head (I guess it was) poked out, it was quite bulbous like a stereotypical alien, was about 8 inches high and was covered in algae from the top of the swamp.
It looked at me with its eyes about maybe 3 inches high and 2 inches across and it had creases in its cheeks (gills?). It blinked at me and I just quickly and quietly went back into my tent and into my sleeping bag.

About maybe 20 minutes later screams came from the girls tent. They said they heard something scrape against the side of their tent and wouldn't accept that it may have just been a fox or rabbit as it didn't sound like it. They said the footsteps were pretty much silent and they would of heard it if it was fox or rabbit.

In the morning, we looked at the area and there was a slimy substance which was most likely algae from the swamp. I never told them what I saw because they were extremely terrified even in the morning and I never told anyone out of fear of not being believed and being labeled as crazy.

TM: Do you know any other sightings in the area and do you have any pictures of the area? Or any more information?

A: The closest sighting, that is similar, I can think of is the Dover Demon in description and I didn't know about it back then. I only knew of bigfoot and the loch ness monster.
About pictures, unfortunately no, I didn't take any, although It should still be there. It happened in the middle of a village called Plumpton in England behind the boy scouts building. So it should still be there if you know anyone close by who's nice enough to get a picture, I would do it myself but It's very far away from me unfortunately.

-End Report-

A thanks goes to Adam for sending in his sighting.

Has anyone else seen anything strange in this area? If so let us know.
