Just not enough attraction - one plant is never enough to bring even average wildlife in regularly. It's also usually better not to try to attract lots of different wildlife at the same time, and concentrate your efforts on just one or two.
Also, you're Rosa Amora is RFH and skunks need a FG grown one to visit.

As Tracey said it would be better not to try to attract lots of different wildlife at the same time. Your skunks have to compete with the very common mice and ducks, which you aren´t deterring, so they take over on most feeds. Also you are attracting ostriches and sugar gliders on the veggies.
The plate of birdmix isn´t of much use, because you only have one cumulus to attract the very rare Kiwi, so the birdmix also will be eaten by mice and ducks mostly.
Too much competition weakens the attraction for ALL of the attracted animals so that makes it likely to get mostly mice and ducks.
I recommend to decide which of the animals you want to attract and then get rid of the other plants.
What do i need to deter the mice and ducks?

You can plant a mushroom to deter mice and ducks. Any fully grown mushroom will deter them (but not 100%), only the supershroom can deter 100% all mice and ducks :)
