POLICE are on the trail of a mystery visitor to Regent’s Park who feeds spicy food to birds.
The park’s dedicated officer is “hunting a mystery bird feeder who dumps huge piles of curried rice by the lake in the early mornings”, the Friends of Regent’s Park reported in its newsletter, adding: “Feeding the birds can affect their habits – some herons have stopped migrating because they are being fed too much here, and the resultant interbreeding is leading to deformities.”
