Alf Thompson's homing pigeon Cedric is taking part in another race and Pat has to deliver a tracking device to attach to the pigeon's leg. It must be delivered by noon, but when a magpie steals the special delivery, Pat is nearly late. He has to use Julian, Charlie and Meera's flying camera to get it to Thompson Ground on time.
