Pictured: James Common who discovered the ferret in his bag.
This cheeky ferret tried to hitch a ride in a photographer's backpack when he was distracted taking photos. James Common put his bag down while bird watching with a friend and got his camera out to snap some pictures of tree sparrows - leaving his bag unzipped and open.
When he returned he found the little stowaway when it poked its head out of his bag at Cresswell Pond in the Northumberland Wildlife Trust. SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.
