    Try spreading around a bag or two of split maize it has worked for me in the past.

    Feed, feed and more feed into long, thickish straw rides so they have to hang about and scratch for a while to get a meal, also a cold snap will see birds retreating into the warmer woods. never heard of fatballs though!!

    bag of split maze in a plastic dustbin tip a load of aniseed on it and mix it up and leave it soak then put a mug full into each bag of wheat you feed , barley straw feed rides , just cut the bale strings and throw the syraw slabs out in a row so birds work it down .
