Daryl2, I don't know what you're feeding them, but if you really want them to come to a particular patch in a particular hour, put out live mealworms and a handful of RSPB Buggy Nibbles there at the start of that hour every day. At this time of year, everything goes for the mealworms, including chaffinches. I use the buggy nibbles instead of peanuts. I did get peanuts too, but the birds never bothered with the peanuts, so I threw out the rotten peanuts and just fill the mesh tubes with nibbles. Recent addition to the local "customer base" is a great spotted woodpecker.
Wrens eating mealworms? Kind of funny.
