Jimmy Bancroft (Niall MacGinnis) is a fighter pilot convalescing in the country from injuries sustained during the Battle of Britain. Along with his nurse Hazel (Rosamund John) they spend their summer days lazing in the Cotswold meadows until they discover a pair of nesting Tawny Pipits, known to have bred only once before in England.
Helen's ornithologist uncle arrives to confirm that the birds are actually Tawny Pipits, but the word soon spreads around the egg-collecting community that there is a rare and lucrative nest in an English backwater village. Afraid of having the birds' eggs stolen or destroyed, the villagers band together under the leadership of the barmy Colonel Barton-Barrington and vow to defend the nest against egg thieves, the army and the Ministry of Agriculture!

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
