A Baby Weasel is riding on a Woodpecker's back!

An incredible photo of a baby weasel on the back of a flying green woodpecker was captured by East London resident Martin Le-May in Hornchurch Country Park on Monday.

Martin Le-May, a hobby photographer, captured this
amazing photo at the Hornchurch Country Park.

According to ITV News, Martin Le-May was walking with his wife when they heard the distressed squawking of a woodpecker.

“I saw that flash of green. So hurriedly I pointed out to Ann the bird and it settled into the grass behind a couple of small silver birch trees.” Martin said. ” Just after I switched from my binoculars to my camera the bird flew across us and slightly in our direction; suddenly it was obvious it had a small mammal on its back and this was a struggle for life.”

Good thing the woodpecker managed to escape with its life after they fell on the ground in front of Le-May and his wife and the weasel got distracted and momentarily let go of its quarry.

“The woodpecker seized the opportunity and flew up and away into some bushes away to our left.” adds Le-May. “Quickly the bird gathered its self respect and flew up into the trees and away from our sight.”
