They will visit you when there are more trees; remember, they are used to it being a field; when startled, they need cover to run to!  We are so lucky, have every bird you can think of just outside our kitchen door; you'll get them in time................ :)

We must be very lucky in our garden in Oak Lane.  We can't keep up with re-filling the bird feeders!  Robins, Starlings, Finches, Blackbirds, Sparrows, Tits and the occasional wren. :) Hopefully, they will find your garden very soon.

During cold spells look out for Bullfinch too; they're colouring is fab.

We've had a few extras this year as well.
Bullfinches, treecreeper and the badger of course:)

Your Robin may have turned up in our garden. We also have two young/female blackbirds (they're actually brown) and what we think may be a wagtail, based on its tail, well, wagging. It spends a lot of time on the ground - a high-risk strategy in a garden with two resident cats...
