Roy is up the Scottish hills with two golden eagles to help bring down mountain hare numbers – and to try out the #eaglecam he has designed. It goes on the back of the eagle allowing the viewer literally to ride on the back of an eagle when it makes a kill. The mountain hare is dying out in some areas due to global warming, but in others it is in pest proportions.
While the BBC had trouble producing a stable image from the back of a golden eagle for its Planet Earth II series – www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/1smHM1qcrqSRwwysjzg6czH/getting-an-eagles-eye-view – Roy cracked the problem.
