Ben Turner as “Robert”

Two Cambridge educated ornithologists, Robert (Ben Turner) and John (Thomas Arnold), have come to conduct a month-long study of a rare sea-bird, the Fork-Tail. They have been sent by the Ministry of Defence and initially, know nothing of the sinister nature of the Ministry's intentions. Their hosts and caretakers for their stay are stern, puritanical tacksman, Mr Kirk (Ewan Hooper) and his beautiful young niece, Ellen (Ruth Everett). When Kirk dies, Ellen finds herself brimming with a new-found freedom and her relationship with the two 'birdmen' develops.
