Forgive my rubbish IT skills but search the above topic to see an amazing picture of a flying woodpecker with a weasel on its back! The woodpecker escaped. Does everyone know an easy way to tell weasels and stoats apart?

Here's a link to the BBC News article.

 

The only way I know of telling them apart is that weasels are weasely recognised and stoats are stoatally different  (Sorry!!!)
