A better way to attract birds might be to erect some nest boxes. If there are pests on the plot they will be taken to feed the young. You could also heap up sticks or stick a kettle somewhere in the hope a robin will build.
Good birds to encourage would be tits, robins, dunnocks and thrushes.
Discourage, ducks, pigeons,doves, partridges and pheasants.
