Yvonne's having a wobble.

Her husband's always been one for the birds and now she's worried she's finally lost him.

But do blue tits really lure men into midlife crises? Can sparrows be a bad influence? Comedy drama by Daniel Thurman.

Yvonne - Paula Wilcox

Neil - Philip Jackson

Wendy - Anne Reid

Austin - Brian Bowles

Directed by Toby Swift

When Yvonne loses her job at the age of 64, she starts to fear that husband Neil's devotion to birding - birdwatching to the uninitiated - is actually all about escaping her and their humdrum life together.

Thus begins a somewhat overenthusiastic pursuit of the truth as she trains her binoculars firmly on Neil's every move.

Can best friend Wendy bring her back to earth?
