I placed winter bird food in my garden with fresh water and I had regular visitors or Robins, wrens and dunnocks usually.
However, Ravens have now discovered the bird food and come everyday bur the other birds are nowhere to be seen which is a real shame.
.I've placed wildburd seed mix, suet cakes with mealworm, suet logs and peanut mix. As its winter and I want to help them eat and drink. I've also placed holly Bush too and sprinkled bird feed under my tree and in planters too for the wrens
I'm not sure if I should dispose of the suet cake and logs as irs been almost 2 weeks plus its raining quite heavily where I live in East London. I'm going to change the seed mix and peanuts.
Can anyone advise me how I can encourage these sweet little birds to return please because I think the Ravens have really intimidated them..
This is my first time attracting birds into my garden.

Birding is for everyone no matter how good or bad we are at it,enjoy it while you can
Our herring gulls are red listed birds. Think about that the next time you hear some flaming idiot calling for a cull of them.
In reply to Clare:
Clare Bailey said:I'll be very surprised if they are ravens
I'm sure everyone would, Clare.
But I don't think that Daniera wants an ID on the birds. More some advice on the original problem/concern posted (which doesn't really change whatever the large, black birds are).
If you follow me.
