A potter has recreated a photograph of a weasel riding on the back of a green woodpecker and will auction it on ebay.

Helen Hodson, 33, works from a studio in Cuckfield. She said: “When Martin’s picture went global many people thought it was a joke – it certainly made me laugh. But I have checked with wildlife experts and, although a rare occurrence, this ‘piggy back ride’ can happen.”

Half the money raised will go to the Sussex Wildlife Trust.
