Members of the Midsomer-in-the-Marsh Ornithological Society (MMOS) fall out when Ralph Ford claims he has spotted a blue-crested hoopoe. The sighting puts him ahead in this year’s list competition but MMOS president, Patrick Morgan, says the bird could never have been seen in Midsomer, as it is native to Uganda. Ralph storms out of the meeting, infuriated. The next day Patrick is found dead in Swansdown Lake, the scene of the alleged hoopoe sighting. His body is pulled from the lake, entangled in a mist net used to catch and release birds. He has sustained several blows to the head and Barnaby and Jones are called in to investigate.
