Is there anyone else in Lewes that finds the pigeon man in Lewes hugely irritating? At first I wasn't particularly bothered, but he's there nearly every day! Mainly because nobody needs a town with greasy, fatty pigeons. They also start getting a bit of an attitude and on 2 occasions when I have been sitting on a bench eating my lunch, once was flapping in front of my face trying to land on something and then on Thursday one landed on the edge of my handbag in front of me.

He clearly has mental health issues. Try showing some basic compassion.

I do not find this man irritating at all because I have an understanding of and compassion for mental illness. Do you know his background?
So a pigeon landed on your handbag; hardly an attack by ISIS was it.

Irate: I find you very irritating, you are stuck up and arrogant. How dare you skate someone and pick on someone for their disabilities. You rude git.
He is doing no harm to you and is enjoying himself. If that was a member of your family you certainly wouldn't be complaining will you. As boo said thank thatcher for the treatment nowadays (or no treatment)
I have heard that he was involved in a accident a few year ago which gave him severe brain damage. Maybe you should live for a week in his shoes to see what it's really like. I have experience in mental health and also work in it.
I think it's lovely what he does and as long as he isn't being a danger to himself or others around him then he is doing no harm and is fine.
Just one more thought rather than slating him on here... Have you ever thought to go up to him and speak to him??

yes it is irritating but as long as he is not dangerous just get along with it but for goodness sake why do people always have to blame Margaret Thatcher for everything, it's ridiculous.

They blame her because it was her and her callous government that started the decline in certain health services, especially those dealing with mental health.

IF this guy does have mental health issues what makes anyone think they need treating? Feeding pigeons is hardly a threat to himself or others. Also, he may be receiving treatment without which he'd be behaving very differently. Fact is no one knows and it's nobody's business.

I think his name is marvin, he was attacked and mugged a few years ago causing a brain injury, so what if he is feeding the birds, hes not harming anyone, they poop on you sometimes regardless of him feeding them.
