Call bird not calling

got a grey crow call bird the other day off a lad from a village 10km away put the call bird into the trap and its a week later nothing, hoping to catch the territorial greys to make way for passerby greys. tried moving the trap to different spots. have they switched off because of the call snap we had.

I'm catching about 3 a day at the moment. The trap is on fire.

I'm using the round multiple catch trap with side entrance.

That's an odd one round traps normally really good.

Greys are just flying over it as if it's not there.

I'm using the same. Where abouts are you? If your reasonably close I'll give you a new call. I have mine in a open field near a large ditch so they can land and look first.

Use a mag call bird. That will give you the advantage of catching Mag's and grey's
