Meet Darchan. He's an Imperial Eagle who spent a day flying over some of London's most famous landmarks with an action camera strapped to his back.

The footage, shot using a Sony HDR-AZ1VR Action Cam, offers a totally new perspective of the capital, not least because a giant eagle takes up half of the screen.

The stunt was to raise awareness of the International Union for Conservation of Nature Red List, a list of endangered animals that are desperately in need of saving.

This isn't the first time an eagle has taken to the skies above a city, in fact another charity, Wings of Liberty, sent their own bird of prey above the skies in Paris giving us a breathtaking view of the city centre.
