Hi Rod !
You're obviously using the wrong material,I found that a Shirley Bassey CD usually did the trick or failing that, you could try a Barry Maniloe.  
Then of course if you aren't worried about using extreme methods you can shove a Kamal on, that usually gets rid of everything, it should be noted that it's especially good on teenagers.

Ps- It's maybe worth trying a couple of Val Doonigan.

Crimson Rosellas have once again devastated our tree ferns.  The dangling
CDs didn't do the deterent trick so I came home with some bird net from
Bunnings.  Looked promising draped over the ferns but the Rosellas landed on
it and kept right on munchin'.  After loosening the net up a bit they seem
to have given up - so far so good - but I had some awful visions of coming
home and finding CRs caught in the loose folds.  Speaking of things being
caught, I haven't been using the Myna Bird trap lately for various reasons,
but still managed to land a quite big rat that blundered its way inside.
