Meanwhile, pigeons isn't noted for being the most intelligent bird. however, this one was clearly more advanced than the "well'ard me ! ," but clinically brain dead, "enforcement officer ".............

I think that is a tad unfair on the enforcement officer. She could have found herself facing a court should she have chosen to go down that route. And the penalty under the Act can be as high as 2,500! He was doing his job and he may have found himself in a quandary. Possibly, he was thinking "This is going to be a bit hard on the old girl but, on the other hand, it is being filmed by myself and Mr/Mrs Innocent Bystander." If his terms of employment say he has no latitude and must issue a ticket, then I wonder if the old dear would have supported him and any family when he was fired for not obeying the company's rules? Anyway, feeding the birdies might seem cute; trying to get the pigeon crap off your car is not! And, if there are multiple signs around the town asking people not to feed the birds what is the old lady's argument then? It is only the same as people allowing their dogs to foul hither and thither.
