'It's the Tawny Pipit!'.
A thoroughly charming wartime drama in which decency and English values are encapsulated in the effort to protect the eggs of a rare migrant bird that has decided to breed in a field near to where a fighter pilot is convalescing from injuries sustained during the Battle of Britain.
Niall MacGinnis plays the pilot who spends his days lazing in the Cotswold meadows with his nurse (Rosamund John) - 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 bird's eggs stolen or destroyed, the villagers band together under the leadership of Colonel Barton-Barrington and vow to defend the nest against egg thieves, the army and the Ministry of Agriculture!
