It looks like a scene from a Disney movie - a baby weasel taking a magical ride on the back of a flying woodpecker.

The incredible photo was captured by photographer Martin Le-May while he was walking with his wife in a London park.

The amateur photographer told ITV that he "feared the worst" for the bird, but the woodpecker was able to eventually shake the weasel off.

"I guess our presence... momentarily distracted the weasel," said Mr Le-May. "The woodpecker seized the opportunity and flew up and away into some bushes away to our left. Quickly the bird gathered its self respect and flew up into the trees and away from our sight."

LE-May added: "The woodpecker left with its life, the weasel just disappeared into the long grass, hungry."
