Pictured: The stoat somersaults through the air
Stoat-ally mad - an acrobatic stoat somersaults through the air. The excitable animal chased birds on the windless morning and later caught a rabbit.
After making its catch, it dragged its prize to a nearby rabbit hole, away from other predators such as foxes and buzzards. The pictures were taken at Marazion Marsh, Cornwall, by keen amateur photographer Bob Sharples. SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.
