A bird-loving father from Birmingham has been threatened with a £5,000 fine and court action for feeding pigeons.
Father-of-two Adnan Mir, aged 37, began feeding the birds in Church Road and Croft Road, Yardley, two years ago after an elderly neighbour who had fed them for 35 years died.

He said he felt sorry for the pigeons, who kept showing up expecting her to feed them – but the council took a rather dim view of his actions.
He was fined £50 for scattering seeds in November 2012, and was given a council caution last year, with the council claiming the seed attracts vermin.
And now the council is threatening further action, accusing him of “ignoring” the warnings.
Mr Mir says he now only feeds pigeons in the park, and says he is not committing a crime.
