And even more important, people make mistakes.

I once saw a flying saucer.  At least that is what my mind saw.

A few minutes investigations proved it to be a bird (a nighthawk
to be precise).

A quick glimpse of a largish animal out in the middle of a featureless
expanse of water can be easily mistaken for something truly unusual.
And Loch Ness has one of the largest races of otter in Europe.

Actually, for awhile, people pretty much *were* searching every day.
