Amazing Aerial GoPro Footage Of London Shot By...An Eagle?

The footage was filmed by an Imperial eagle named Darchan who spent his day flying high over London's bustling streets with a GoPro camera strapped to his back.

The stunning footage was shot to raise awareness for the International Union for the Conservation of Nature's Red List, which lists endangered species desperately in need of saving from extinction.

The footage of one of the world's busiest cities shows many of the metropolis' well known landmarks including the Thames, Tower Bridge, St. Paul's Cathedral and the Olympic Park.

There have been a number of similar videos released recently by wildlife and conservation groups and interested members of the public. Eagles are usually the stars, but penguins have been known to make an appearance from time to time.
