I am a nurturing nature loving person who has no family whatsoever and no friends - have built a beautiful strong rapport with some local village birds, esp pigeons and Covids. However, it is upsetting a tenant above me who regularly engages in extreme antisocial behaviours and even unable to live in my own flat as a direct result of this. He has been arrested several rimes for his behaviours that are typically drug-related. This same tenant recently complained about neighbours parrots (different building from ours) as they are very vocal and there are four of them. I love the sound of all nature and have no issues at all with the parrotts.
Complaint against me
The building I live in is a supported housing block and each of us have our own flats and a key worker we see once a week. I have lived in the building for approx 13-years and only started feeding the birds during COVID-lockdown as I cannot work due to individual mental-health issues. My support worker recently said that a tenant has made a complaint about me feeding the birds and haven't banned me yet will be buying some garden feeders ect. I know who made the complaint yet I definitely know who it is I have offended, yet compared to his behaviours, I am amazed at a complaint being made in first instance.
Now have halted feeding them them adequately - they are typically juevenile birds and the mother is feeding them the boiled eggs I have put out in a bowl.
I am now very worried that the tenant above me will possibly report me to some higher authority simply because I nuture nature and without intending to offend anyone. My support worker is wonderful about it and wanting to reach a compromise with the tenant yet simply feel that his 'human rights' appear to lack any consideration for all of the antisocial behaviours I have to live with from him for 6 years and nothing gets done about it.
Any supportive advice will be most appreciated.
