Catching hares goes viral

Fieldsports Channel’s Eaglecam film is breaking records for views. Footage taken from a camera mounted on an eagle gives the viewer the feeling they are riding on its back as it stoops on and catches mountain hares in Scotland.

Roy Lupton came up with the camera mount and put it on his eagle. It is the main subject of Fieldsports Britain episode 377.
