I would bin the rusty one, use the other one if its for peanuts, and get a new one to put mixed seeds in. They love those flat suet blocks, our pet shop sell a holder for them for just over a pound.
Amazon have some very good suet blocks at 10 fof £7.99.
Some birds are ground feeders only so some seed down would be good. Its always best to make sure its all gone by the night, you dont want to atract rats.
If you are going to use fat balls, could I ask you to take the netting of and put them in a holder please, birds get caught, I have rescued ones with beaks and feet caught in them.
If you can afford it, a wild bird book is handy to identify what comes to your food,
