Amazing Eagle London Landmark Flight Footage

Ravens and pigeons are the birds normally associated with the city of London, but this time an Eagle got to soar over England's capital, with spectacular results.

This incredible footage was taken when a Sony Action Camera was strapped to an imperial eagle's back as it flew around various famous landmarks over the course of a week, including Tower Bridge, St Paul's Cathedral and the Olympic Park Orbit sculpture.

It was organised by The Freedom Project to mark the 50th anniversary of the International Union of Conservation of Nature, in order to raise awareness of their Red List of Threatened Species - which includes the fearless bird that took to the skies for this video.

You can find out more here, and watch the stunning footage below.
